Some quality characteristics of berries i.e., total sugar, titrable acidity, pH and soluble solid were determined for 23 clones of Vitis vinifera L. cv. Kalecik Karasi. Significant differences (p < 0.05) were recorded for the quality characteristics among clones. Glucose and fructose content ranged from 120.59 to 136.45 and 112.505 to 123.185 g L-1, respectively; whereas glucose/fructose ratio ranged from 0.900 to 0.955. Likewise, soluble solids, total acidity and pH ranged from 21.00 to 25.60%, 0.30 to 0.55% and 3.00 to 3.70, respectively. The overall similarity level of all clones was found 80.278%. As a result, it can be concluded that three Kalecik Karasi clones: 6, 18 and 19 may be considered to have reasonable performance in terms of evaluated characteristics in the study.
