The aim of this work was to determine the concentration of selected carotenoids (neoxanthin, violaxanthin, antheraxanthin, lutein, zeaxanthin and ß-carotene) and phenolic acids in selected scab resistant and powdery mildew tolerant apple varieties originating from the Station of apple breeding of the IEB. We investigated three different apple varieties - Luna (yellow), Red Topaz (red) and Karneval (streaked) for their antioxidant contents in peel and flesh immediately after the harvest and after 7 months of storage.
