Abstract

Turkey is one of the most important citrus producing countries in Mediterranean Basin. Citrus production is concentrated in Mediterranean region of Turkey followed by Aegean region. Edremit, Burhaniye and Havran are north western districts with cool subtropical climate conditions along Aegean Sea. The district’s economy is based on agricultural activities like olive and citrus growing. The ecological properties of the district have provided growing of high quality of mandarin fruits. In this study, fruit yield, canopy volume and pomological characteristics including fruit weight, length, diameter, rind thickness, total soluble solid content (TSS), titratable acidity (TA) and juice content (JC) were investigated in ‘Owari’ Satsuma (Citrus unshiu Marc.), ‘Okitsu’ Satsuma (Citrus unshiu) and ‘Nova’ mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco x (Citrus. paradisi Macf. x C. reticulata Blanco)) grafted on sour orange (Citrus aurantium L.), trifoliate orange (Poncirus trifoliata (L.) Raf.) and Carrizo citrange (C. sinensis cv. Washington Navel x Poncirus trifoliata (L.) Raf.) rootstocks. According to the obtained results, ‘Okitsu’ Satsuma had better yield and fruit quality performances than ‘Owari’ Satsuma and ‘Nova’ trees. Moreover, Carrizo citrange should be preferred for replacing the trifoliate orange rootstock which is used traditionally in north Aegean region of Turkey.
