Four different varieties of red cherry tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum var. cerasiformae, L. esculentum var. pyriformae, L. esculentum var. grandifolium, and L. esculentum var. racemigerum) were evaluated for their potential to serve as a source of genes for improvement of some quality traits in cultivated varieties. Physical and chemical properties like pH, moisture (M), dry matter content (DM), ash (AS), titratable acids (TA), ascorbic acid (AA), and total carbohydrates (TCH) were investigated on the rape fruit at varieties grown under the same agro-ecological conditions. The mean values obtained for pH, TA, AA, DM, M, AS, and TCH were 4.52 ± 0.11, 0.56 ± 0.06%, 20.56 ± 1.32 mg/100 gfw, 7.14 ± 0.45%, 92.86 ± 0.45%, 0.65 ± 0.11 %, and 5.23 ± 0.80 %, respectively. Statistically significant differences were observed in AA and AS content in all varieties. Varieties of pyriformae and grandifolium significantly differ regarding pH, DM and M content. The variety of cerasiformae showed the greatest content of DM, AS, and AA, and the lowest content of moisture and TA. The greatest content of TCH and moisture was observed at the variety of grandifolium. The highest AA and the lowest moisture content in the variety of cerasiformae indicate that this variety will have a longer shelf life compared to other investigated varieties and according to the other investigated quality traits it can be considered that this variety is the most promising source for genes that control AA, DM, and AS content in the fruit.
