Abstract:
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of different sampling year and geographical regions on some physical characteristics of seven hazelnut cultivars, as ‘Cakildak’, ‘Fosa’, ‘Karafindik’, ‘Mincane’, ‘Palaz’, ‘Tombul’ and ‘Uzunmusa’. For this reason, samples were picked up in the same commercial hazelnut orchard located in Bolu-Akcakoca, West Black Sea Region during 2005-2006 harvest seasons and also in the Hazelnut Research Institute in Giresun, East Black Sea region in the 2006 harvest season. Physical characteristics, as in shell nut width, length and thickness, nut color, splitted nut ratio, empty nut rate, twin kernels rate, shrivelled kernels rate and rate of kernel weight to in shell nut weight, kernel rate, were determined in three replications. Each replication included 100 in shell nuts for each cultivar. Data were statistically analyzed at P≤0.05 error level. As a result of this study, the effect of year on investigated nut characteristics showed significant differences based on cultivars. Significant effect of geographical regions on these characteristics, with the exception of shrivelled kernels, was observed.
