Quality changes of strawberries during storage can be caused both by microbiological and physiological processes. There is little known about the possible contribution of microbiological processes to the quality degradation of strawberries. In this study, quality of strawberries during storage was evaluated by analytical and sensorial analyses. It was the aim to investigate the influence of microbiological activity on the changes of different quality factors of strawberries during storage.
