Abstract: This study aimed was evaluating the effect of the time of storage (0, 7, 14, 21, 28 and 35 days) and of the temperature (1, 14 and 24?C) in the tenor of solids soluble totals of grapes Ni?gara rosada cultivated in the organic system.The grape Ni?gara rosada (Vitis labrusca L. x Vitis vinifera L.) its come as one of the main consumed grapes of Brazil. In the market of fresh fruits one of the important aspects is the quality. That involves, besides the characteristics of the fruits the processes used in the production and commercialization. The consumer is every more concerned with the origin of the products that will acquire, with the presence of toxicant residues, hormones, toxin and with the conservation state. The cultivation system, the cultivars and the crop conditions and post harvest, its cause direct reflexes in the conservation and quality of the grapes. The results demonstrated that in the storage at 1 and 14?C the content of solids soluble totals stayed without significant variations. However in the storage at 24?C the tenors decrease along the period, reducing the quality of the fruits and turning them with low quality for the consumption. The temperatures of storage at 1 and 14?C were the ones that its provided longer time of conservation of the fruits.
