MORPHOLOGICAL AND POMOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF FIG GENOTYPES SELECTED FROM MEDITERRANEAN AND SOUTH EAST ANATOLIA REGIONS
This study was carried out during 2002-2004 at the Cukurova University. Twenty two fig genotypes, selected from the Mediterranean and South East Anatolia regions were experimented. Morphological and pomological characteristics of genotypes were evaluated under same environmental conditions for the fresh fruit consumption. In the morphological characteristics, tree habitus, strength, branching, lateral shoot development, annual shoot length and thickness, tendency of branching, leaf shape, number of leaf per shoot, leaf length, leaf lobes, leaf stalk length and thickness of the genotypes were investigated for three years. In the pomological characteristics, fruit weight was changed between 22.03 g (01 İN 67) and 60.59 g (63 İN 11). The other values were: 32.97 mm (63 İN 02) and 49.07 mm (63 İN 09) of width; 31.07 mm (01 İN 67) and 48.61 mm (63 İN 14) of length; 18.7% (63 İN 01) and 26.0% (63 İN 16) of TSS ratio were determined. Also, neck and fruit skin color, width and peeling, fruit flesh thickness and color, TSS ratio (Brix %), pH and total acidity of the genotypes were investigated.
