Goldenberry, Physalis peruviana L., seed properties


Golden strawberry is among the tropical fruits that are consumed fondly in Turkey as well as in the world. More and more research is being done on this fruit day by day. This study was carried out in 2022 at Bingol University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Biosystem Engineering and Ege University, Faculty of Agriculture, Department of Field Crops. In the study, some physical properties of seeds of two different golden strawberry cultivars (Denizli and Konya) were investigated. It is foreseen that the obtained values will benefit the breeding studies, mechanization practices and product processing steps, thus increasing the production possibilities.
