POMOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF AUTOCHTHONOUS PLUM GENOTYPES (PRUNUS DOMESTICA) FROM BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
Plums represented a very significant economic factor in Bosnia in the twentieth century. Dominant in plum assortment is Pozegaca, but the appearance of the Plum pox caused a stagnation of plum production. The aim of this paper is to describe the basic pomological characteristics of fruit at six autochthonous plum genotypes: two types of Pozegaca from locality Glavaticevo-Konjic, one type of Pozegaca from locality Sovici-Jablanica, two types of Havaca (from localities Doboj Istok and Gradacac) and one type of Sisaca from locality Doboj Istok. Fruit weight of the genotypes ranged from 15.8 g in genotype Sisaca, up to 19.3 g in genotype Havaca. Among the types of Pozegaca there were no differences in terms of fruit weight. The biggest stone weight had Havaca (1.21 g), and the lowest one had genotype Sisaca (0.84 g). Due to this characteristic, there were differences among the types of Pozegaca. Genotype Pozegaca, from locality Glavaticevo had the highest yield of fruit (95.3%), whereas the biggest genotype Havaca had the lowest yield (93.67%). Among the types of Pozegaca, there were differences between localities in terms of the fruit yield.
