Abstract:

Investigations were carried out on nine almond varieties/selections (three exotic and six indigenous) to study their nut and kernel quality planted at experiment farm of Dryland Agriculture Research Station (DARS), SKUAST-Kashmir. Maximum nut weight (2.24 and 2.19 g) and nut length (39.88 mm and 40.69 mm) was recorded in Primorskij during 1st and 2nd year of study, respectively, however nut breadth was maximum in Waris (20.42 mm and 20.17). Kernel weight was recorded highest Primorskij(1.29 g and 1.26 g) along with kernel length (28.62 mm and 29.04 mm) during both the years whereas minimum kernel breadth was registered in Waris (12.68 mm and 12.44 mm), respectively. Minimum values for nut weight (1.11 g and 1.19 g) and nut length (26.37 mm and 25.27 mm) was recorded in KD-05 and KD-06, respectively. Nut breadth (17.00 mm and 16.86 mm), kernel weight (0.73 g and 0.80 g), kernel length (18.53 mm and 18.04 mm) was recorded minimum in KD-03 whereas minimum kernel breadth was minimum in Waris (10.85 mm and 10.53 mm). Maximum shelling percentage (57.58 % and 52.05 %) was recorded in Primorskij during both the year of study. Primorskij had papery shell with intermediate kernel and shell colour. From the present investigation it is concluded that Primorskij performed best under temperate conditions of Kashmir.
