Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to find out the effect of different pollinizers and cultivars on quality traits of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) at experimental orchard of Department of Horticulture, CCS Haryana Agricultural University, Hisar during 2015. Four different date palm cultivars (Hillawi, Zahidi, Khadrawi and Shamran) and two pollinizers (P. dactylifera and P. sylvestris) were selected for present investigation. The results indicated that the improvement in total soluble solids was observed with P. sylvestris (39.40 °Brix) pollens over the pollens of P. dactylifera (34.98 °Brix). The cv. Khadrawi (41.17 °Brix) was found superior in total soluble solid followed by cv. Shamran (40.20 °Brix). Fruit acidity was observed nearly equal with pollens of P. dactylifera (0.16%) and P. sylvestris (0.15%). Among the cvs, Zahidi (0.16%) and Shamran (0.16%) recorded higher value for acidity followed by cvs. Hillawi (0.15%) and Khadrawi (0.14%). The cv. Shamran (27.10%) was superior to all other cvs for total and reducing sugars followed by cv. Khadrawi (24.79%). In future, these experimental results will prove very useful for the induction of metaxenia effect in this fruit crop.
