Kale AS, Patil MB and Patil SG
Citrus are one of the commercially most important fruits in the world. Citrus fruit have good nutritive values which are regarded as a high source of Vit. ‘C’ and also contain vitamin A and B along source with Minerals coupled with high amount of sugar. Present study was undertaken with the view to compare different physico-chemical characters of sweet orange such as Average acidity of fruit juice, Average total soluble solid of fruit, Average pH of fruit juice, Average ascorbic acid content of fruit juice. Acidity range of Nucellar and Sathgudi was between 1.17 to 1.52 and 1.29 to 1.52 respectively. Range of Vit. ‘C’ content was 46.08 to 59.31mg/100g, pH of Nucellar was 5.28 and 5.26 in Sathgudi. The juice content, acidity of juice and vit. ’ C’ content of sathgudi was more than Nucellar.
