Abstract:

A study was conducted to evaluate 04 strawberry cultivars (Sweet Charlie, Winter Down, Camarosa, Festival) at four planting times (10th October, 25th October, 5th November and 25th November) to be tested at 15 days intervals under sub tropic conditions of NCR Delhi region on terrace gardening. The cultivar selection was made based on plant growth, yield and important fruit quality parameters. These were harvested on each date. Parameters include plant height, number of leaves, crowns per plant, length of stolen, fruit number and weight per plant, fruit size and fruit yield per plant; fruit total soluble solids, acidity (%), ascorbic acid contents and juice content (%). The cultivar selection will be made based on plant growth, yield and important fruit quality parameters, harvested for each date. The Highest plant height was reported in Winter Down (19.4) and Sweet Charli (18.8) followed by Camarosa (16.8) and Festival (16.3). Similar trends in case of number of leaves per plant also reported in Winter Down (23.7) and Sweet Charli (24.5) followed by Camarosa (20.8) and Festival (18.2). The crown per plant was Winter Down (6.2) and Sweet Charli (5.2) followed by Camarosa (5.2) and Festival (4.8). The length of stolen registered in Sweet Charli (40.3) followed by Winter Down (36.9). The number of fruits harvested per plant was highest in Winter Down (16.5) and Sweet Charli (15.3) followed by Camarosa (13.4) and Festival (12.3). However the fruit size was maximum in Sweet Charli followed by Winter Down, Camarosa and Festival respectively. The highest fruit yield per plant (211.2 g) was recorded in Winter Down followed by Sweet Charli (205.2g), Camarosa (171.52g) and Festival (142.6g), while fruit weight was higher in Sweet Charli (13.2g) and Camarosa (12.8g). Fruit quality in terms of TSS in Winter Down (8.130Brix) and Sweet Charli (9.00Brix) followed by Camarosa (9.90Brix) and Festival (8.90Brix). (14.20Brix), Titrable acidity (%) in Winter Down (0.88) and Sweet Charli (0.85) followed by Camarosa (0.69) and Festival (0.82), Ascorbic acid mg/100g pulp in Winter Down (68.5) and Sweet Charli (80.5) followed by Camarosa (72.5) and Festival (76.6) and juice content(%) in Winter Down (82.2) and Sweet Charli (85.2) followed by Camarosa (74.5) and Festival (73.2). Based on these findings selection of best two cultivar Winter Down and Sweet Charlie and date of planting at 10th October suitable for NCR Delhi region on terrace gardening were made.
