This study was carried out to determine the pomological traits of 'Su' cherry laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) as grown in Trabzon (Turkey) province in 1999, 2000 and 2001. Cluster weight, number of fruit per cluster, fruit weight, stone weight, soluble solids, pH and titrable acid content were determined as 46.75 g, 9.85, 4.89 g, 0.37 g, 15.92 %, 4.55 and 0.29 %, respectively. 'Su' is promising cultivar for the province as table cultivar due to its pomological characteristics. This cultivar is better than others because of it is very juicy and attractive color for skin and flesh.
