The objective of this research performed between 1999 and 2001 was the selection of promising ber genotypes in ber population in Civril, Denizli region and then the preservation as genetic resources. For this purpose, 52 genotypes were selected and evaluated for their superior fruit characteristics and productivity. Promising genotypes were selected using the 'Weighted-Ranged' method. 7 genotypes were selected based on fruit volume, yield, flesh/stone ratio, total soluble solids and vitamin C. The yield of selected genotypes changed between 6.34 and 17.28 g per annual shoot. The fruit characteristics for the selected genotypes were ranged from 4.52 to 6.12 g for fruit weights, 0.34-0.41 g for stone weights, 11.02-16.15 for flesh/stone ratio, 28.10-30.03% for total soluble solids, 31.43-33.63% for total solid, 225.3-366.0 mg 100g(-1) for vitamin C, 2.17-3.0% for ash, 0.47-0.68% for total nitrogen and 2.91-4.24% for total protein.
