Characterization of carob germplasm (Ceratonia siliqua L.) in Sicily



Characterization of carob germplasm (Ceratonia siliqua L.) in Sicily



Journal of Horticultural Science 72(4): 537-543



Sixteen carob cultivars growing in established orchards in Sicily were studied to evaluate pulp and seed yield with regard to endosperm percentage, to determine the overall degree of polymorphism of the characters and to detect similarities among cultivars. These cultivars have undergone selective pressure for alimentary uses and are probably not suitable for new industrial uses or for forestry in marginal areas.
