Abstract: Interest in the biochemical composition of Viburnum opulus fruit has increased because of food industry demand for natural substances. To increase the use of V. opulus fruit in foods and pharmaceutics, a better understanding of their biochemical components and health-promoting activities is needed. The aim of this study was to compare the biochemical components of V. opulus accessions and select the most valuable genotypes as sources of health-promoting components. This study corroborates the value of V. opulus as a potential source of biologically active substances. This research work was conducted to determine biochemical variability of V. opulus and to select the genotypes that could best serve as sources of health promoting substances. Twelve selected genotypes were evaluated. Fruits of the local clone P3 were characterised by large amounts of total phenolics, ascorbic acid, and reducing sugars. V. opulus var. sargentii and V. opulus var. americanum contained exceptionally large amounts of total phenolics, 1504.0 and 1455.0 mg/100 g, respectively. The amount of ascorbic acid varied from 12.4 to 44.4 mg/100 g, the amount of carotenoids varied from 1.4 to 2.8 mg/100g, the amount of anthocyanins varied from 23.2 to 49.9 mg/100 g, and the amount of total phenolics varied from 733.0 to 1504.0 mg/100 g
