Özet

The research project was started in 1980's With the aim of developing fig production through selecting varieties suitable for fresh consumption. 272 edible fig cultigens were selected and evaluated in respect to maturation period, fruit quality, need for caprification and yield. As a result of a three-years evaluation, promising fresh varieties were selected. Quality was evaluated according to the weighted-rankit method, and 31 varieties were determined as promising due to their high scores. Among the evaluated fresh fig varieties, early season (Breba crop), early-mid season, mid season and late season varieties were recommended. Especially, few late ripening ones seem to be outstanding.
