During the III Meeting of the Reseau Agricole Mediterraneen, held in Florence in September 1994, a working group has been created in order to collect, evaluate, manage, conserve and use collections of minor fruit trees species belonging to and cultivated in the Mediterranean basin, and namely Ficus carica (Fig), Punica granatum (Pomegranate), Diospyros kaki (Japanese Persimmon), Eryobotria japonica (Loquat), Opuntia ficus-indica and O. amyclaea (Prickly-pear), Cydonia oblonga (Quince for fruit production), Castanea sativa (European Chestnut), Pistacia vera (Pistachio), all of them already collected, and Morus alba, M. nigra, Morus spp and other Moraceae (Mulberry), Ceratonia siliqua (Carob tree), Crataegus azarolus (Azerole), Mespilus germanica (Medlar), Arbutus unedo (Strawberry tree - Madrona), Cornus mas (Cornelian cherry); Zizyphus vulgaris (Jujube) and Sorbus domestica (Sorb), still uncollected species. A project submitted to the European Commission in the frame of the European Programme on the conservation, characterization, collection and utilization of genetic resources in agriculture has been accepted and supported since April 1, 1996. At present the network is composed by 11 partners belonging to Institutions of European Mediterranean countries (6 from Italy, 2 from Spain, 2 from Greece and 1 from France). Aims. The main objective of the project is to establish by a common strategy a basis for the conservation and utilisation of minor fruit tree species of the Mediterranean Basin, to create an European inventory and to develop a first database on germplasm collections comprehensive of both first and advanced characterisation descriptors, also linked to the agronomic evaluation of collected material. Diffusion of results will be done via different media (print, microcomputer electronic diskettes and on-line) to public or private extension services, and they will be addresses mainly to fruit growers also by means of pomological exhibitions and workshops. All private and public Institutions, fruitgrowers, nurseries and people engaged in some extent to conservation of minor fruit tree species are invited to join this network to exchange information and propagation material. Contact points are all the 11 partners.
