Abstract:

The experimental study was conducted in the main cherry growing belts of Kashmir viz. Srinagar, Baramulla and Shopian districts during 2013 and 2014. Fruit weight and fruit volume recorded wide range of variability. Three accessions of cherry viz. KC-36, KC-37 and KC-40 recorded highest fruit weight and fruit volume. Most of the accessions were medium in stone weight except five wherein stone weight was small and in six accessions large stone weight was observed. In most of the accessions, the ratio of fruit weight to stone weight was medium, however in three genotypes KC-08, KC -21 and KC-22 the ratio was small and in four genotypes KC-11, KC-36, KC-37 and KC-42 the ratio was large. TSS ranged between 13.2 to 22.0 0Brix and the acidity ranged between 0.33-0.96. Maximum yield efficiency of 1.43 was observed in KC-38. Divergence analysis of the forty five cherry genotypes, using Mahalanobis D2 statistics revealed significant results and the genotypes got grouped into seven clusters. Maimum inter-cluster distance was found between cluster-VI and cluster-VII. Cluster-VI recorded maximum mean values for fruit weight (10.79 g), fruit volume (9.27 cm3) and fruit weight to stone weight ratio (22.05), minimum stone weight (0.40 g) was recorded in cluster-V and cluster-II recorded maximum T.S.S. (19.06 0Brix), yield efficiency (1.01) and minimum acidity (0.56 per cent).
