The fatty acid compositions of seeds from 29 black currant genotypes were determined using a rapid small-scale procedure. There was interest in alpha-linolenic, stearidonic, and, especially, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) contents, and most samples showed values between 11.1 and 18.7%, between 2.5 and 4.5%, and between 11.6 and 17.4%, respectively. However, six genotypes exhibited gamma-linolenic contents >18%, and values >20% were recorded in four of these genotypes. The fatty acid contents of the six genotypes were also analyzed by using a conventional procedure, and only slight differences in fatty acid composition were found between the two methods. Although GLA content was not strongly correlated with juice parameters, some genotypes had both high GLA contents and desirable juice characteristics. The results obtained provide evidence that it is possible to select for GLA contents without negatively affecting juice quality, and both aspects can be combined in a single cultivar, thereby increasing the added value of the whole fruit.
