In this work, storage in cold store under normal atmosphere conditions for 6 months then 7 days of shelf life of 'Granny Smith' apple variety that was grown in Nigde conditions, and harvested in two different harvest times was examined. Superficial scald was found one of the important limitations of 'Granny Smith' apples after 4 months storage. As a result the evaluation of harvest dates showed that the 1st harvest time is more suitable for storage purposes of this cultivar and the 'Granny Smith' apple variety was stored more succesful at 1 degrees C, 85-90% RH during 6 months.
