In order to overcome same disadvantages of acidic solubilization of pectin from apple pomace, enzymatic selective solubilization with exo-polygalacturonase was developed. According to analyses of the effects of temperature, pH and reaction time on extraction yield, the maximum yield by the enzymatic method, shown under the extraction condition of $45^{\circ}C$, pH 7 and 60 hours, was 31.0%, whereas the yield from an acidic method was 8%. Also the quality of pectin extracted by the enzymatic method was to that from acidic solubilization. The purity and methoxyl content of enzyme-extracted pectin were 80.1% and 6.36%, respectively, which were higher than 75.7% and 2.44% of acid-solubilized pectin. Viscosity average molecular weights of enzymic extracted and acid solubilized pectins were $1.50{\times}10^4\;and\;7.66{\times}10^4$, respectively.
