Abstract:

The present investigations entitled “Pollination studies in relation to fruit drop in persimmon (Diospyros kaki L.) cv. Hachiya was carried out at Horticulture Research and Training Station Kandaghat. Effect of different modes of pollination (no pollination, open pollination and hand pollination) using Diospyros virginiana and Kandaghat Pink (local selection) as a source of pollen on fruit development and fruit drop was evaluated. The growth pattern followed a sigmoid growth curve irrespective of different modes of pollination. Fruit drop was minimum when Diospyros virginiana was used as a source of pollen. However, maximum fruit drop was observed when the flowers were simply bagged. Fruit size, weight and number of seeds were different in fruits from different mode of pollination while other fruit character namely, total soluble solids (TSS), titratable acidity and sugars were not influenced by pollination.


Keywords: Persimmon, Hachiya, Pollination, Diospyros virginiana, Fruit drop.
