Abstract:
The evaluation of nine introduced apricot cultivars originating from the United States was carried out in the region of Belgrade over a period of six years (2009-2014). Control cultivar for comparison was 'Hungarian Best'. Introduced cultivars flowered 2-5 days before the control, while their harvest occurred 3-17 days earlier than in the control cultivar. Compared to the control, significantly higher yield was achieved in 'Orangered', 'Tomcot' and 'Goldrich', while significantly higher fruit weight was found in 'Goldrich', 'Robada' and 'NJA-55'. Introduced cultivars had lower content of soluble solids than the control. Cultivars 'Goldrich' and 'Orangered' stood out for both fruit appearance and quality. Of the cultivars studied, the following can be recommended for growing in Belgrade region: 'Goldrich', 'Orangered' and 'Tomcot'.
