SELECTION OF MALE PISTACIA SPP. TYPES GROWING IN GAZIANTEP
This study was carried out between 1993 – 94 in Gaziantep to determine the suitable pollinators for the female cultivars Uzun, Halebi, Kirmizi, Siirt and Ohadi. Twenty selected males were used. Growth rate, flowering time, suitability of the flowering times of the male with female cultivars, the number of flower cluster on a secondary branch, the number of flowers cluster on a shoot, the number of flowers on a cluster, length of flower cluster, amount of pollen production, viability and germination of pollen and pollen storage period were investigated. Using the weighted ranking method; Type 30 was found to be the most suitable male for Uzun and Halebi cultivars, Type 14 for Siirt and Kirmizi cultivars, Type 3 and 46 were found to be suitable male for Ohadi cultivar, provided the two types are grown in the same orchard.
