WALNUT SELECTION IN MIDDLE TAURUS MOUNTAINS
The walnut population of these areas were determined in 1993 and the selection work has begun in 1994. The most important characteristics of the selection work are: lateral bud production, late bud break, and fruit qualities. As-2 (9.3 g) and Kam-12 (18.1 g) gave the best results for fruit weight. The highest kernel production was obtained from Klan-8 (57.39%), Kam-10 (56.01%), Kam-12 (56.35%) and Kam-9 (56.30%).
