Abstract

Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) is a fruit traditionally grown in the Mediterranean region for many years. North Cyprus, which is a Mediterranean country, has a suitable ecology for pomegranate growing. The country does not have enough of regular pomegranate orchards. Thus, the sufficient amounts of the earlier and the middle season and the latest pomegranate cultivars should be grown in Cyprus to develop pomegranate growing. So, the aim of this study was to determine the adaptation of 10 pomegranate cultivars to the North Cyprus ecological conditions.
