The study was conducted to observe the bitter pit incidence in relation with cultivars, rootstocks, minerals content in leaves and fruits under commercial orchard conditions, and to examine the accompanying anatomical changes. Number of pits counted at harvest was high in ‘Megumi’, medium in ‘Jonagold’ and ‘Golden Delicious’, and low in ‘Mutsu’, ‘Fuji’, and ‘Starkrimson’. The pit was the deepest in ‘Fuji’.
