Biological and chemical properties of cv. Willamette were contrasted with those of cvs Tulameen, Latham, Meeker and K81-6 grown under agro-environmental conditions of Western Serbia. The following parameters were examined: yield per unit land area, total dry matter content, soluble solids content, total reducing sugars, total acids content, pH value, total pectines and total anthocyanins. The obtained results showed that cvs Willamette and Meeker had exceptional yield potential and highest quality fruits, which renders them suitable for both fresh use and various forms of processing, whereas cv. Tulameen can be recommended for fresh consumption only. K81-6 is recommended for processing and fast freezing after harvesting.Keywords:
