New Promising Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus L.) genotypes in Turkey
I. Macit, H. Demirsoy
Abstract: Cherry laurel (Laurocerasus officinalis Reomer) is apparently native in some parts of the East Black Sea region. This study was conducted to determine promising cherry laurel genotypes of the East Black Sea Region in Turkey in 2005 and 2006. A modified weighted ranked method was used to evaluate the genotypes by using some yield and fruit characteristics such as yield per trunk diameter area, yield per tree, fruit weight, flesh/seed rate, appearance, taste, astringency, uniformity, total soluble solids, fruit number per cluster and earliness. The 61 K 04, 61 K 03, 28 K 02 and 28 K 10 genotypes were superior compared with the other genotypes in terms of the characteristics evaluated. The four promising genotypes from this study will be followed with new studies and registered as new cultivars in the near future for the world.
