The evolution of Brix, protein content, polyphenoloxidase activity and peroxidase activity during the ripening of Crimson Seedless table grape was studied in three consecutive years (2006, 2007 and 2008). The total protein content was determined according to Bradford’s dye binding method, and polyphenoloxidase (PPO) and peroxidase (POD) were extracted using Triton X-114 and characterised using spectrophotometric methods. The year had a statistically significant effect on all the studied parameters and there was an interannual correlation in the evolution of protein, PPO, POD and Brix. All the studied parameters were statistically correlated, except POD activity with protein content. Weather conditions during the ripening period had a greater effect on protein content than PPO and POD activity.
