This work included describing of firmness, hardness, cohesiveness of flesh and force at skin puncture as well as spectrum of these properties changes after storage period. It was proved that during the storage period occurs a statistically significant decrease of parameters, excluding flesh cohesiveness, characterizing texture of examined pear varieties.
