Abstract

Pomegranate is fruit species well-adapted to arid and semi-arid conditions and highly valued crop widely cultivated in Mediterranean and Near Asia countries. The most important pomegranate cultivars in Macedonia are “Bejnarija”, “Lifanka” and “Karamustafa”. The objective of this study was to evaluated physical and chemical parameters of pomegranate cultivar “Karamustafa”, collected from two different location of the R. Macedonia. The physical parameters include fruit fresh weight, percentage of grain (%), weight of 100 berries (g), and percentage of juice (%). The cultivar “Karamustafa” (239.57- 304.79 g) belongs to a group of large fruits. The yield juice ranged from 47.83 % (Valandovo) to 50.63 % (Josifovo). Based on the content of the total acids (TA), the cultivar “Karamustafa” belongs to a group of sweet cultivar (TA<1). Based on the results we found significant differences in the weight of the fruit, the content of the total acids and the content of the total polyphenols in the juice.
