Abstract: The species Viburnum opulus has a long history of use in food and medicine.The fruits have been used to treat a wide range of maladies including heart diseases, coughs and colds, digestive troubles, and bleeding. To increase the use of V. opulus in foods and pharmaceutics, a better understanding of their biological components and health-promoting activities is needed, notwhithstanding the studies on V. opulus fruits are limited. The aim of these investigations was to compare the biochemical components of different V. opulus accessions and select the most valuable genotypes. Different accessions were compared according to the content of ascorbic acid, carotenoids, anthocyanins, and phenolic compounds. Ascorbic acid is one of the most important water-soluble vitamin, the highest ascorbic acid amount was detected in the selected Lithuanian clone P3. Fruits of V. opulus cultivars and clones accumulated on average 2.1 mg/100 g of carotenoids. The differences in total phenolic amounts were deemed to be caused by the genetic variation. The average amount of total phenolics in in fruit was 1156.0 mg/100 g. The amounts of total anthocyanins ranged from 23.3 to 44.6 mg/100 g. The cultivars and clones of V. opulus exhibited excetionally high levels of total phenolics compared to other horticultural plants. These evaluations substantiate selection of local clones and cultivars of V. opulus for further breeding works
