Abstract:

The present study on “Characterization of tamarind accessions for morphometric traits and phytochemical composition” was carried out at Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, UAS, GKVK, Bangalore, during 2018-19 and 2019-20. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design with three replications and twenty two accessions with the objective to find out the superior fruit characters and phytochemical parameters genotypes. Significant variations were observed among the genotypes with respect to fruit characters and quality parameters. Among all the genotypes studied higher morphometric traits and quality traits were obtained in accession GKTAM-18 showing maximum pod weight (35.61 g), pod length (19.85 cm), pod width (3.60 cm), pulp weight (18.94 g), shell weight (8.73 g), seed per cent (28.99 %), fiber per cent (6.65 %) and acidity per cent (18.94 %). Maximum pulp per cent (55.79 %) was recorded in GKTAM -1, whereas higher TSS (21.37 ºBrix) was observed in GKTAM -16. On the basis of the present study, GKTAM-18 showed the highest mean performance for morphometric traits and phytochemical characters and it can be utilized for further evaluation programme.
