. orientalis natural habitat, trees exhibit a range of vegetative and fruit characters ( Güleryüz, 1988 ). Fruit are often small (2–3.5 cm), sour/sweet, astringent, and bitter ( Khoshbakht and Hammer, 2005 ). Evaluations of genetic diversity of wild Malus

germplasm, efforts have been made on a worldwide scale to collect and preserve genetic diversity. In Tarragona, the diverse local hazelnut germplasm was investigated by Tasias Valls (1975) , who assigned cultivars to three groups: I) one main cultivar
