Abstract

Plum is an important fruit whose consumption has been increasing in recent years. The importance of plum is due to the organic acids, polyphenolic substances, and vitamins it contains. This study was carried out to determine some pomological and chemical properties of wild plums collected from Kayseri province between 2022-2023. Pomological characteristics of selected plum genotypes; Fruit width, fruit length, fruit weight, fruit height, fruit stalk length, seed weight, flesh firmness, and chemical properties; pH is the amount of soluble solid content (SSC), titratable acidity (TA). Considering the pomological characteristics of the wild plum genotype examined in the study, the highest fruit weight is 20.5 g, fruit length is 37.6 mm, fruit width is 22.3 mm, fruit height is 23.1 mm, fruit stalk length is 6.58 mm, seed weight is 0.99 g. and fruit flesh firmness 1.19 kg/cm2 chemical properties were found as pH 3.76, TA 0.85%, SSC 8.75%
