Abstract:

An experiment was carried out to study biochemical composition of different genotypes of tomato. A total of 22 genotypes were studied in which significant differences were observed for various biochemical traits among the genotypes. Genotype 2014/TODVAR-3 showed highest β-carotene (mg/100 ml) and lycopene content (mg/100 ml), whereas genotype 2015/TOCVAR-3, showed highest chlorophyll a (mg/100 ml) and b. Genotype 2015/TOINDVAR-5 showed highest total carotenoid (mg/100 g). Highest Ascorbic acid (mg/100 g), titrable acidity (%) and pH was observed in the genotype 2014/TODVAR-5, 2015/TOCVAR-5 and 2015/TOCVAR-3, respectively. The highest TSS percent (%) was recorded in genotype 2015/TOCVAR-5 on the other hand genotype2015/TOINDVAR-5 gave highest total sugar (%) and reducing sugar (%), and 2015/TOINDVAR-4 gave highest non-reducing sugar (%).
