Abstract:

Peach (Prunus persica L.) is one of the most important temperate stone fruit belongs to the family Rosaceae and sub family Prunoidae. Five peach cultivars like Shan-e-Punjab, Florda prince, Pratap, Early Grand, Prabhat, were cultivated for evaluation purposes to come up with a suitable cultivar for commercial production under agro-climatic conditions of Bihar, India. The experiment was laid out in a randomized block design with 4 replications at Bihar Agricultural College Sabour, Bhagalpur in the year 2018-19. Maximum TSS was found in Prabhat (16.3oBrix) whereas minimum TSS was observed in Florda Prince (10.7oBrix). Maximum acidity was found in Early Grand (0.60%) while minimum acidity was observed in Pratap (0.18%) which gave rise to maximum TSS/Acidity ratio (82.93) while minimum in Early Grand (24.00). Maximum total sugar (15.18%) and non reducing sugar (7.72%) was found in Florda Prince whereas minimum total sugar (10.66%) was found in Early Grand and minimum non reducing sugar (5.40%) was found in Shan-e-Punjab. Maximum reducing sugar found in Florda Prince (5.34%) however minimum reducing sugar was observed in Pratap (3.04%). Maximum ascorbic acid (18.05mg/100g pulp) was found in Florda Prince while Minimum in Shan-e-Punjab (10.45mg/100g pulp). Finally it can be concluded that Florda prince is the best cultivar followed by shan-e-punjab under agro-climatic conditions of Bihar.
