Of all the factors that influence the storage capacity of horticultural products, the time of storage in refrigerated conditions is of particular importance, because the delay in storage of fruits in refrigerated areas reduces their storage capacity and losses during storage increase. Taking into account that in current practice the increase of the period between harvesting and storage differs depending on transport and conditioning, we conducted research in pedoclimatic conditions on the Transylvanian plateau, on the influence of storage on the behavior of pears during storage. Curé pears harvested at the optimum time and stored within 24 hours of harvest, are generally better preserved, compared to the pre-stored fruits for 15 days at 9-12 °C temperature. The losses registered after 100 days of storage are on average by 7.3-14.1% lower, and the qualitative depreciations by 5.2-12.3%. Pears harvested 14 days earlier than the optimal time, behave better when stored if they were pre-store for 7 days at 9-12 °C.
