Abstract:

The study was conducted to know the suitability of variety and harvesting stage for dehydration of okra (Abelmoschus esculentus L. Moench). The experiment consists of three varieties (ArkaNikhita, ArkaAnamika and Hiriyur Local) and three harvesting stages (4 Days after Anthesis, 6 Days after Anthesis and 8 Days After Anthesis) in all possible combinations were assessed for physico-chemical characters. Among different varieties and harvesting stages, V1 (ArkaNikhita) variety and H1 (4Days After Anthesis) harvesting stage recorded maximum pod weight, dry matter, rehydration ratio and recorded minimum dehydration ratio. Interaction of varieties and harvesting stages were found significant with respect to physico-chemical characters. The treatment combination V1H1 (ArkaNikhita harvested at 4 Days after Anthesis) recorded significantly higher values with respect to pod weight (26.80 g), dry matter (12.95%) and rehydration ratio (6.53). The results of Sensory evaluation of dehydrated okra shown that V1H1 (ArkaNikhita harvested at 4 Days after Anthesis) treatment combination received highest score (3.75) for overall acceptance.
