Abstract:

Study of flower quality parameters in jasmine is an important commercial aspect in marketing as well as export point of view. Jasmine is a commercially valued ornamental crop and is grown mostly in tropical and subtropical countries of the world. Although many varieties of Jasminum species are cultivated in India, but mainly seven varieties are commercially cultivated in Tamilnadu, i.e., Ramanathapuram Gundumalli, Madanban, Ramabanam, Single Mohra, CO.1 Mullai, Parimullai and CO.1 Pitchi. There is very less or no scientific evidence available about the flower quality parameters during peak flowering season. In this study, highest flower bud diameter (1.00 cm) recorded in Single Mohra whereas highest flower bud length recorded in CO. 1 Pitchi (4.10 cm). Highest hundred flower bud weight (30.80 g) and single flower bud weight (0.310 g) were observed in Madanban. Freshness index were highest in Single Mohra and lowest in Parimullai. It is important to study the qualitative quantitative and visual flower quality parameters of jasmine to gain profit in the flower export business as well as in value addition businesses. This study can do help in crop improvement programmes.
