During the vegetation period, bud burst and full bloom observations were made and recorded as day / month. At the end of the study, differences were found among local genotypes in terms of phenological stages. The earliest bud burst was recorded on 27 March with GES 01 named Sık Dimrit and the latest bud burst was observed on April 2.
