Özet

This study was aimed at assessing the quality characteristics of 21 apricot genotypes such as Turfanda Eski Malatya, Karacabey, Paviot, Zerdali No. 1, Aprikoz, Soganci, Hasanbey, Levent, Royal, Sekerpare, Cataloglu, Kabaasi, Stark Early Orange, Sakit-3, Sam, Hacihaliloglu, Iri Bitirgen, Casna Drenova, Cologlu, Ordubat, Imrahor that are grown in Malatya provinces of Turkey. Main soluble sugars of experimental varieties were separated, identified and quantified using high-performance liquid chromatography with refractive index detection. According to the results, sugar composition of apricot genotypes was different from one genotype to another. Sucrose, glucose, and fructose were determined as the major sugars in all apricot varieties and our local genotypes were detected to have higher concentration in terms of identified sugars.
