Abstract:

An experiment was conducted to study the seed coat to kernel ratio, seed coat tannin and tamarind kernel powder (TKP) outturn in different age-classes viz., age class of 10-20 years, age class of 20-30 years, age class of 30-40 years, age class of 40-50 years and age class of 50-60 years at Paiyur, Kaveripattinam taluk, Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu, India. Among the five age-classes, the kernel (Endosperm) content was maximum (77.89 %) in age class of 40-50 years and minimum (68.34 %) in age class of 50-60 years and vice versa in seed coat content. In seed coat tannin, the age class of 10-20 years was exhibited maximum with 285.13 mg g-1 and minimum in age class of 20-30 years (259.66 mg g-1). The kernel was pulverised and it was subjected for tamarind kernel powder outturn (TKP). The tamarind kernel powder (TKP) outturn was exhibited highest in age class of 40-50 years (80.96 %) and lowest in age class of 50-60 years (75.78 %). On concluding the study, the age class of 40-50 years bestow maximum in kernel content in seed and tamarind kernel powder outturn, so hence it can be recommended for tamarind kernel powder yield in seed raised plantation.
