Author(s):

Abstract:
Eleven different Aonla genotypes grown in semi-arid conditions of North India were evaluated for biochemical attributes related to health promoting properties viz., TSS, organic acids, sugars, ascorbic acid, tannin content (%) and astringency during the year 2017-18. TSS and sugars content was observed highest in BSR 1. Organic acid content (citric acid equivalent) was recorded lowest (1.87%) in NA 6 and high (2.67%) in Seedling 2. The ascorbic acid content among the genotypes was ranged from 308.74 to 565.88 mg/100 pulp. It was recorded maximum (565.88 mg/100 g pulp) in fruit pulp of genotype Chakaiya and minimum in Seedling 1. Tannin content was recorded maximum (3.60%) in genotype NA 10 and minimum in NA 7. Orgonoleptic evaluation showed high astringency in genotypes Chakaiya, Krishna, NA 10, Seedling 1 and Seedling 2, whereas the genotypes CHES 1, NA 6, NA 7, NA 20, G 1 and BSR 1 were categorised as medium astringent.
