Prima', 'Gala', 'Remo', 'Topáz', 'Idared', 'Releika', 'Resi', 'Rubinola', 'Rajka', 'Rewena' and 'Florina' apple cultivars, both from organic and integrated farming, from Pallag and Újfehértó, were compared. Average size, weight, soluble solids, titratable acidity, total polyphenols, free radical scavenging capacity expressed as Trolox equivalent (TEAC), copper and zinc were determined at harvest and after cool storage. Organic apples were more acidic, while integrated fruits had mostly higher
