Abstract:

The present study entitled “Pollination Compatibility among different Apple cultivars.” was carried out under Kashmir conditions, in an apple orchard of Department Of Horticulture, Pattan, district Baramulla during 2014-2015. Four crab apple species (Malus floribunda, Golden Hornet, Manchurian and Fenna) and Golden Delicious were used as pollinizers for five apple cultivars (viz., Red Chief, Red Delicious, Red Fuji, Gala Mast and Summer Red) and their functional pollen ability was determined. The highest fruit weight was observed with the pollen of Malus floribunda (189.60g) followed by Golden Delicious (187.15g). The highest fruit length was observed with the pollen of Malus floribunda (6.82 cm) followed by Manchurian (6.73cm) and the lowest with that of Golden Delicious (6.29cm) irrespective of the varieties. Highest fruit diameter was observed with the pollen of Golden Hornet (6.38cm) followed by Manchurian (6.36cm). The overall mean of the pollinizers reflects that the maximum length/diameter ratios of (1.13cm) was observed with the pollinizer Golden Delicious
