Abstract

The paper presents results on the development of plum cultivars derived from Prunus domestica L. through planned hybridisation in Cacak (Serbia). Cacanska Lepotica, Cacanska Najbolja and Stanley cultivars were used as pollen donors, the Stanley being pollen recipient in all combinations. The study conducted over the 1991-2007 period resulted in the selection of seven highest-quality F1 hybrids having, according to commonly accepted local and world criteria, positive pomological traits, the ones related to fruit size, mesocarp percentage and soluble solids content being most pronounced with the P4 (23/III/90) and P6 (11/IV/90) hybrids.

Key words: Pomological traits, cultivars, hybrids, plum, Prunus domestica L.
