Strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa Duch.) is one of the most nutritious berries, which belongs to the family Rosaceae. It is mainly a temperate region fruit crop but also can be grown in tropical and sub-tropical climatic region because of availability of day neutral and thermo-insensitive varieties. A research trial was conducted at Research Farm of Centre of Excellence on Protected Cultivation and Precision Farming under net tunnel, College of Agriculture, IGKV, Raipur (C.G.) to evaluate different strawberry cultivars for physico-chemical characteristics of fruits under net tunnel condition in the plain region of Chhattisgarh. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Completely Block Design (RBD) with 12 strawberry cultivars, replicated thrice. Result revealed that regarding physical parameters of fruits i.e. Weight, length, diameter and volume, Nabila recorded the maximum among all the varieties, while the minimum was recorded in Gili. Regarding chemical composition of fruits, Nabila was found superior over all other varieties having maximum TSS, TSS: Acid ratio, total sugar, reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar and minimum acidity under protected condition.
