Abstract

The Eastern and Central Anatolia Region have the largest native rose hip population. This study was carried out on wildly grown rose hip genotypes in Yozgat province of the Central Anatolia Region during 2015-2016. Fruit samples from 142 bushes were collected in the first year and their locations marked by Global Positioning System. Depending on the primary selection criteria (fruit weight, fruit flesh rate, total soluble solid, vitamin C, aroma, total dry matter, and degree of thornless), 49 genotypes were selected at the end of the first year. 11 genotypes which were in the group of “very well” (755-677 scores) and 38 genotypes in the group of “good” (676-598 scores) were amplified with the wood cuttings and root cuttings during the rest period. Morphological and physiological characterization studies continue on these genotypes.
