Onder Turkmen , Mustafa C rka and Suat ensoy

Abstract:
This study was carried out in order to evaluate a new edible wild rhubarb species (Rheum ribes L.), a partially commercial vegetable collected from the nature in Eastern and Southern Anatolia, Northern Iraq and partly Northwestern Iran in early spring. The study was conducted on the 104 rhubarb samples collected from the Yedi Kiliseler and the Cehennem Deresi countrysides of Mount Erek in Van province of Turkey. Weighted scaling included the flower stalk number, the flower stalk length, the flower stalk width and Soluble Solid Content (SSC) and pH of flower stalk with 30, 25, 25, 10 and 10% of their significance values of these criteria, respectively. According to results, 12 genotypes of Yedi Kiliseler countryside and 19 genotypes of Cehennem River countryside were selected and a collection plot was formed with these best genotypes at the Research and Application Farm of Horticulture Department of Yuzuncu Y l University.
