Abstract:
Betel vine (Piper betle) is heart-shaped deep green, human healthy leaves, perennial plant an important cash crop of India for livelihood security in rural area particularly small as well as marginal betel growers of “baree community” in Maharashtra. In the present study, an attempt has been made for the estimation of chlorophyll, total mucilage no. in different betel vine genotypes leaf from the germplasm preserve at oilseed research station, Jalgaon. The chlorophyll of from five different germplasm of betel vine was estimated. The JBL 06(2.59 ppm) having significantly superior chlorophyll concentration than the others, while higher no. of mucilage canals found in Kapoori and JBL 01 (04) cultivar with only one mucilage canal found in Jalgaon Red the local cultivar of betel vine. Both the parameter which are estimated are responsible for the antioxidant property of betel vine. Several species of Piper (e.g. P. betle L. and P. nigrum L.) are distinguished by mucilage canals in petiole and axis.
