Abstract:

Nine newly identified carrot germplasms and one local carrot variety were evaluated in terms of their physico-chemical composition and acceptability. The physical parameters viz. weight, length and diameter of the carrot germplasms ranged from 46 - 91.40 g, 11.87 – 18.48 cm and 3.11 – 4.43 cm respectively. There was no significant difference observed for circumference, volume, bulk density and phloem to xylem ratio among the carrot germplasms. All the germplasms were cylindrical in shape. The different colours were noted in the carrot germplasms i.e. yellow red in three carrot germplasms and local carrot variety, red in four germplasms, yellow green and red purple in one each of germpalsms. The physico-chemical parameters viz. dry matter, TSS, pH and vitamin C content of the carrot germpalsms ranged from 9.92 - 18.11 %, 5.92 – 8.440 Brix, 6.70 – 7.84 and 4.01 – 4.7 mg/100 g respectively. Germpalsms viz. UHSBC64, UHSBC23-1, UHSBC44-1 had better acceptability indices in boiled and sauted carrots. Germplasms UHSBC53, UHSBC64 and UHSBC23-1 were on par with local carrot variety with regard to physico-chemical composition and acceptability.
