Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Qualitative and quantitative parameters of fruit in different pummelo (Citrus grandis L. Obseck) genotypes grown in Konkan conditions” was carried out during during 2019-2021 at College of Horticulture, Dr. Balasaheb Sawant Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, District-Ratnagiri. The experiment was carried out in different pummelo genotypes viz., T1 (PAG-1), T2 (NRCC-2), T3 (NRCC-3), T4 (NRCC-5), T5 (AWF), T6 (ARF) and T7 (DPLP-2). These genotypes were studied for different morphological, physical and chemical parameters of flower, fruit and seeds. Qualitative parameters of fruit like flowering month, harvesting month, fruit axis, cross section shape of axis, nature of oil gland, fruit shape, fruit shape at apex and base, skin colour, surface texture, pulp colour, seed shape, seed surface and seed colour were varied slightly. The main flowering was observed in the month of December-January. After beginning of flowering, six to seven months were essential for maturation of fruits. The genotype PAG-1 had early flowering and least maturity period required for fruit. While quantitative parameters were mostly variated. In which physical parameters includes fruit weight, pulp weight, rind weight and peel weight of different pummelo genotypes were ranged between 492.2-1036.04 g, 164.29-620.89 g, 198.02-379.66 g and 66.93-147.38 g per fruit, respectively. Also, fruit diameter, fruit length and rind thickness varied from 348.76-598.36 mm, 125.59-207.69 mm and 16.19-37.22 mm per fruit, respectively. Chemical parameters of fruits were also showed more variation. The Pummelo genotype NRCC-3 had maximum TSS (12.41°B) and good ascorbic acid content (54.46 mg/100g). NRCC-2 recorded maximum reducing sugar (2.13%). ARF had highest acidity (1.04%) and lowest pH (3.19). The investigation revealed that the different pummelo genotypes under study possess variation in flower, fruit and seed parameters. Hence, the present study will contribute in conservation of Pummelo genotypes.
