The paper presents two-year investigations (2005-2006) of basic productive and organoleptic traits of the apple cultivars 'Mondial Gala', 'Galaxy', 'Golden Reinders', 'Braeburn' and 'Jonathan Watson' grown in the vicinity of Cacak. The plantation was established in 2003 with a 3 x 1.3 m spacing (2,564 trees/ha). The cultivars were grafted on the M-9 rootstock. The training system used was Slender Spindle. The results showed that the highest fruit weight was registered with the 'Braeburn' apple (241.00 g) and the lowest weight with the cultivar 'Galaxy' (146.60 g). The highest and lowest yields were recorded with the 'Mondial Gala' (26.922 t/ha) and 'Braeburn' (14.614 t/ha) cultivars, respectively. The highest share of fruits with diameter over 70 mm was determined in the cultivars 'Braeburn' (98.00%) and 'Golden Reinders' (92.00%) and the lowest one in the 'Galaxy' apple (16.00%). The 'Jonathan Watson' had the best fruit skin colour (85.90%) and the highest soluble solids content was d...etermined in the 'Golden Reinders' apple (16.00 degrees Brix).
