Abstract

Elements of three different apples in an apple tree were determined by Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-AES). K contents of apples ranged from 8510 mg/kg (green apple) to 11942 mg/kg (yellow-red apple). While Mg contents of three different apples change between 505 mg/kg (wild apple) and 734 mg/kg (wild apple), P contents ranged from 683 mg/kg (green apple) to 1145 mg/kg (yellow-red apple). In addition, S contents of apple samples were found between 413 mg/kg (green apple) to 556 mg/kg (yellow-red apple). B contents of apples were found between 18.8 mg/kg (wild apple) to 21.0 mg/kg (green apple). As a result, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Zn, Ca, K and Mg contents of wild apple were found higher than those of results of other samples.
