High yielding variety of Gujarat Tomato-6 for Saurashtra condition

Rathod RK, Jivani LL and Vachhani JH
A promising entry JTL-12-07 (GT-6) was developed through hybridization between Junagadh Ruby x JT-3, followed by pedigree method of selection. This entry was under testing from 2012-13 to 2016-17 during late kharif season at Junagadh, Anand, Navsari, Ladol and Thasara centers. On the basis of 14 testing trials, the culture JTL-12-07 (GT-6) has recorded higher mean fruit yield of 316.05 q/ha as compared to check varieties AT-3 (240.84 q/ha) and JT-3 (246.94 q/ha) which was 31.23% and 27.99% higher over all the three check varieties, respectively. Regarding quality parameters total soluble sugar (4.06%) and acidity (0.27%) was higher than check JT-3 (3.54 and 0.20) respectively, while total soluble solids (6.50Brix) was more than check varieties AT-3 and JT-3 (6.00Brix). Lycopene (4.73 mg/100ml) and ascorbic acid (21.59 mg/100 ml) was also higher than both the check varieties. Thus, the entry JTL-12-07 is proposed for recommendation for general cultivation during late kharif season in tomato growing areas of Gujarat State with the name Gujarat Tomato - 6 (GT-6).
