Some Local Plum Varieties Grown in Tokat Province

Mehmet Gunes

Tokat province is one of the most important regions of Turkey for fruit growth where several foreign origin, domestic and local plum varieties are commonly grown. Some of local plum varieties grown have economical importance for either fresh, dried consumptions or in processed products. In this study, some of the pomological and phenological characteristics of nine local plum varieties were evaluated. Pomological characteristics of these varieties were found as below: Fruit weights, lengths and diameters were ranged between 5.23-25.18 g, 22.83-34.29 mm, 20.05-35.48 mm values respectively. Flesh thicknesses and flesh rates of fruits were between 6.64 - 9.95 mm, 91.45 - 98.08 % rates respectively. Lengths, thicknesses, diameters and weights of stones of these varieties were determined between 14.42 - 22.19 mm, 5.86-8.55 mm and 8.10 -13.95 mm values respectively. Also pHs, soluble solid contents (SSC) and titratable acidities were ranged between 3.15-4.43, 13.67-19.83 and 0.18-1.88% rates respectively. The beginning of flowering, full flowering, end of flowering and harvest dates of varieties were recorded as phenological properties.
