Apricot is an important fruit species cultivated in the world. Different varieties of apricot with various quality and sensory characteristics that vary according to the countries are consumed. It is important to breed new varieties to meet consumer demands. Therefore, in this study that was conducted with the 'Hacihaliloglu' x 'Boccucia' population to develop new varieties at a later stage, physical, chemical sensory characteristics of the hybrid population were investigated and the status of the population through PCA (Principal Component Analysis) and CA (Clustering Analysis) upon determining the correlation between properties evaluated. Significantly, high levels of variation were observed regarding fruit weight, color, firmness and harvest time. Fruit color and harvest time have been distinctive parameters in selecting genotypes. The dendrogram obtained from cluster analysis grouped 20 genotypes in the same group while the other genotypes were placed in a separate group.
