The study was carried out using the germplasm of fig trees from the national collection at the Agriculture University of Tirana. The collection contains several varieties of fig collected from different areas for purposes of conservation and preventing further genepool depletion. 10 genotypes of fig were analysed for quantitative and qualitative characteristics. All genotypes express especially dominant traits such is: colour of fruit, internal colour of fruit, lenticels, taste of fruit, cavity of fruit, length of fruit, form of fruit, form of leaves, type of leaves, genetic traits. This study are analyses quantitave traits such as: weight fruit, weight of tree/fig, Weight is variable parameter and depend on the age of fig tree, growth of tree, variety of the fig tree as well as adaptions of land and climatic condition because varieties have different origin. At all varieties are adapted to soil and climatic condition due to varieties having different origins. All examined varieties, are well adapted to soil and climatic in climatic condition. For varieties which are with maturity of times weight of fig tree is different, in the first maturity of fruit fig weight is a big than second maturity of fig tree weight. There are the less beffer fig trees than uniffer figs. Dominant uniffer varieties mature in August-September. However, last year we analyses with method: Reference AOAC 934.06, Sugar 21.73 2018, 2019; acidity was analyses AOAC 942.15 g/l All parameters were analyses statistical.
