Abstract:
An investigation was carried out at Department of Horticulture, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during the year 2019-20. The experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Design with Factorial concept comprising eight treatment combinations with three replications. The treatments comprised of four level of regions (R) viz., R1 =West Gujarat Zone, R2 = North Gujarat Zone, R3 = Middle Gujarat Zone, R4 = South Gujarat Zone and two level of species (S) viz., S1 = Hylocereus undatus (White pulp) and S2 = Hylocereus polyrhizus (Red pulp). In case of nutritional evaluation maximum calcium (8.32 mg/100 g) and phosphorus (33.85 mg/100 g) content recorded in species of West Gujarat Zone (R1) whereas maximum magnesium (40.76 mg/100 g)) and iron (1.47 mg/100 g) content recorded in species of Middle Gujarat Zone (R3) and South Gujarat Zone (R4), respectively. In case of species highest calcium (8.63 mg/100 g), magnesium (40.95 mg/100 g), iron (1.40 mg/100 g) and phosphorous (33.21 mg/100 g) content recorded in species Hylocereus polyrhizus (S2) and in treatment combination highest calcium (8.76 mg/100 g) and phosphorus (34.41 mg/100 g) content recorded maximum in R1S2 (West Gujarat Zone + Hylocereus polyrhizus) whereas highest magnesium (42.30 mg/100 g) and iron (1.64 mg/100 g) content recorded in R3S2 (Middle Gujarat Zone + Hylocereus polyrhizus) and R4S2 (South Gujarat Zone + Hylocereus polyrhizus), respectively. In case of organoleptic evaluation highest appearance score was obtained by species S1 (Hylocereus undatus) (8.60) and highest taste score was obtained by species S2 (Hylocereus polyrhizus) (8.53).
