Selection of several fig genotypes (Ficus carica L.) from the Romanian fig populations assessment
Fig (Ficus carica L.) is widespread in the southern and western areas of Romania, where it was been a popular garden plant since ancient times. The Romanian fig populations have been collected and assessed to create a local gene bank. Fig cultivars collected from different parts of the country were analyzed and described in accordance with IPGRI descriptors. Biochemical analyses completed the morphological and pomological description. The studied genotypes showed significant phenotypic diversity. Selected genotypes with potential as commercial orchards were selected and planted in several locations. A comparative analysis is presented.
