ABSTRACT

Three sour cherries cultivars, Marela, Oblacinska and Cigancica, collected from a south
Serbia were evaluated and compered for their content of heavy metals. Inductively
coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) is widely recognized as a
suitable technique for the determination of heavly metals. The content od Cd and Pb are
in intervale 0.066-0.399 and 3.466-7.199 μg/100g fresh weight of sour cherry.
