In this study, the most important characteristics of tree vigour and productivity, as well as pomological traits (fruit morphometric and chemical characteristics) of new late ripening cultivars ʻDivnaʼ and ʻPetraʼ released at Fruit Research Institute, Čačak were evaluated and compared to standard cultivar ʻStanleyʼ. Both new cultivars had slightly larger tree and yield in comparison to ʻStanleyʼ, but smaller fruit in general. ʻPetraʼ had the best chemical properties of fruit followed by ʻDivnaʼ. Both new cultivars could be very interesting for growing in new orchards due to very late ripening time, good fruit quality and high cropping potential and also could be used in further breeding activities.
