Abstract The research results of the changes of marketable product quality and natural losses during common cold storage and a shelf life period of 7 days at 20°C (cv. Golden Delicious) under post-harvest treatment with 1-methylcyclopropene (1-MCP) were presented in the paper. It was found out that postharvest treatment of apples (cv. Golden Delicious) with 1-MCP increased marketable products output by 0,6–16,9% with the advantage of higher commodity grade and reduced a natural loss. Postharvest treatment ensures 1.5 times lower losses from wilting, 2.5 – from fruit rot
