Abstract:

A field trail in a complete Randomized Design was conducted at Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya, West Bengal during 2010-2011 to assess the growth, flowering, fruiting, yield and quality of tamarind of five varieties namely PKM-1, Urigam, Vantoor, Red and Sweet. The results indicated superiority of variety PKM-1 with plant height (445.33- 569 cm), East-west canopy expansion (458.67- 604.00 cm), number of fruit retention panicle-1 (44.33%), TSS (480 Brix), total sugar (40.33 g) with lower acidity (6.7 mg). The variety Urigam exhibited better performance with the characters like canopy expansion in North South direction (491.00 – 612.00 cm), trunk girth (39-52 cm), number of flowers panicle-1 (14.33), number of fruit set panicle-1 (10.33), fruit length (20.67 cm) and diameter (25.30 mm), fruit weight (17.77 g) and fruit yield tree-1 (1388 g). Varieties Urigam and PKM-1 may be introduced in West Bengal for commercial cultivation.
