Abstract

Almond is a type of fruit that grows both economically and naturally in many regions of Turkey. In this study, leaf and fruit characteristics of 3 different almond varieties of foreign origin grown in Ürgüp district of Nevşehir province in the Cappadocia region in 2021 and 2022 were determined. Ferragnes variety with a value of 23.47 mm in terms of leaf width, Ferragnes variety with a value of 67.9 mm in leaf length, and Ferraduel variety with a value of 13.62 in terms of petiole length formed the highest values in the leaf characteristics examined. Considering the fruit data, it was determined that Ferragnes variety had the highest value in terms of fruit length with 40.62 mm, Ferragnes variety had the highest value in fruit width values with 23.99 mm, and Ferragnes variety had the highest value in terms of fruit weight with 6.24 g. When the kernel weight data were examined, the highest value was found in Ferragnes variety with 1.61 g, and when the kernel width and kernel length data were examined, the highest values were determined in Ferragnes variety with 14.55 mm and 27.70 mm, respectively. The results of the study are thought to be important in terms of shedding light on future studies, especially since limited studies have been carried out in this region.
