The aim of this study was to determine the adaptation of 21 pomegranate cultivars to the Adana ecological conditions. An experiment was carried out with 'İzmir 1', 'İzmir 2', 'İzmir 8', 'İzmir 10', 'İzmir 12', 'İzmir 15', 'İzmir 16', 'İzmir 23', 'İzmir 26', 'İzmir 29', 'İzmir 1261', 'İzmir 1264', 'İzmir 1265', 'İzmir 1267', 'İzmir 1445', 'İzmir 1453', 'İzmir 1465', 'İzmir 1479', 'İzmir 1483', 'İzmir 1499' and 'İzmir 1513' in five replications at the research and experimental field of Agricultural Faculty of Çukurova University between 2001 and 2003. Fruit weight, fruit length, fruit diameter, aril rate, juice rate, peel thickness, TSS, acidity, skin colour, aril colour, taste, seed hardness were determined in fruits in pomological analyses. Several pomegranate cultivars were found to be suitable for the ecological conditions of Adana and fruit characters varied in cultivars.
