This research was carried out in Artvin Province in Turkey for determining characteristics of 16 selected mulberry (Morus alba) types in the years 2013-2014. In the scope of productivity observations, fruit weight, total soluble solid (TSS), seedless, fruit juice yield, fruit dry yield, titratable acidity and taste were measured. Among the selected types fruit weight ranged 0.85-2.46 g, total soluble solids 15.53-30.20%, fruit juice yield 31.45-49.40% and titratable acid contents 0.06-0.14 mg 100 mL-1.These types are intended for fresh consumption, for drying and processing in jam.
