A high-quality genofund of fruit species and varieties, which are the result of centuries-long adaptation and selection, characterises the Una – Sana Canton. Therefore, this work has included research on the thirty-one sites in eight municipalities (Bihać, Bosanska Krupa, Bosanski Petrovac, Bužim, Cazin, Sanski Most, Velika Kladuša) of the Una- Sana Canton. The aim is primarily to protect and preserve endangered fruit trees and genofund, whereby the first step in meeting these goals is the inventory of native species and varieties. The total of 275 native fruit accessions has been found at these sites, apples and pears being dominant. Most native fruit accessions are not commercially significant varieties. However, local inhabitants mainly use them in the processing and preparation of traditional products. Also, a high degree of tolerance of these accessions for particular diseases and pests was recorded, whereby these accessions represent an exceptional source of starting material for future breeding steps. Key words: Native fruit, genofund, Una-Sana Canton, inventory, accession
