The stability of the main sugars and the organic acids neochlorogenic acid, p-coumaroylquinic acid and rutin was assessed in the Vanda, Napoleonova, Kordia, New Moon, Sweetheart, and Regina sweet cherry (Prunus avium L.) cultivars during post-harvest storage. Neochlorogenic acid was the predominant phenolic acid in these sweet cherry cultivars followed by p-coumaroylquinic acid. Rutin concentrations ranged from 0.5 ± 0.38 to 12.35 ± 2.84 mg/kg of homogenate and its concentration was higher in the Sweetheart, Kordia, and Regina cultivars in the postharvest time.
