Özet

Organic acid, phenolic compound, sugar and vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) contents of the standard Turkish cherry cultivar "0900 Ziraat" as well as the local cherry cultivars of "Beyrudi", "kisa sap" and "uzun sap" fruits were determined. Concerning organic acid contents in the examined cultivars, malic acid content was identified to be higher (13,914 g/kg in "kisa sap" local cultivar) than other organic acids. Gallic acid content was identified to be higher than the contents of other phenolic compounds and the highest amount was detected in "0900 Ziraat" cultivar (95,512 mg/100 g). Among the sugar types of fructose, glucose and sucrose, glucose was identified to be the dominant sugar in the examined cultivars and the highest amount was detected in local cultivar (215,907 g/kg). In terms of vitamin C content, the highest amount was detected in "kisa sap" local cultivar (11.448 mg/100 g). In addition, it was found statistically important differences among organic acid contents, phenolic contents, sugar and vitamin C in cherry cultivars. (c) 2012 Friends Science Publishers
