ABSTRACT

The behavior of 10 chestnut genotypes selected from different provinces of Black Sea Region was determined under the same ecological conditions between 1999 and 2004. Two locations were used in the study, the first one is Fatsa County in Ordu provinces and second one is Terme County in Samsun provinces. Trial orchards were established in 1998-1999. Plant growth, yield, pomological and phenological traits of the genotypes were examined. The data were evaluated by the weighted-rankit method. The scores of the chestnut genotypes were determined with respect to their qualitative characteristics. And then, relative scores of them for general quality, nut size, earliness and suitability to chestnut paste were determined. The following genotypes were selected for their special quality scores. For nut size: 556-7 (12.6 g), for earliness: 552-8 and SE 21-2 which maturing in the first half of September, for chestnut paste: 556-8 and SE 3-12, for general quality: SE 21-9.
