The paper presents the research results concerning the impact of varietal properties of apples on the efficiency of pressing juice. The research was carried out on eight apple cultivars from the crop of 2011 and 2012 after three month storing in a cold store with a controlled atmosphere. Pressing was carried out in one cycle with the use of a laboratory bucket press. It was reported that varietal properties significantly influence the pressing efficiency. The highest efficiency was obtained in case of Idared cultivar and the lowest for Elise and Boiken variety. Moreover, it was proved that the content of essence, pH value of juice, dynamic viscosity and the juice thickness depend on the varietal properties of apples. The obtained juice was characterised with the content of essence exceeding Brix 10o, which indicated usefulness of all the investigated cultivars for production of cloudy juices.
