This study was the first record on nutrient characteristics of goldenberry types in Turkey. In this study; 6 types of goldenberry were used as material which were collected from different side of Turkey and cultivated in observation parcel of Atatürk Horticultural Central Research Institute Yalova (Turkey). Obtained data will be used for future selection and registration steps of these types. For this purpose carotene, vitamin C, crude fiber, total phenolic and mineral matter content and antioxidant activity of goldenberries were determined. The results showed that goldenberry types are rich in vitamin C, total phenolic content and minerals (especially phosphorus) content. Also they have been found as a rich source of crude fiber and carotene. 6th type has the highest total phenol (48.60 mg GAE/100g), crude fiber (4.10%) and vitamin C (34.86 mg AAE/100g) content and 3rd type has the lowest total phenol (42.16 mg GAE/100g), vitamin C (31.40 mg AAE/100g) and carotene (1.98 mg/100g) content. According to evaluation of these results 6th type was determined as featured types for registration as new cultivar.
