Abstract:

The present investigations entitled “Performance of some apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.) cultivars for fruit quality traits under mid hill conditions of Himachal Pradesh” were carried out in the experimental orchard of the HRTS and KVK, Kandaghat, Dr Yashwant Singh Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (H.P.) during the year 2016 for their suitability for commercial cultivation. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Block Design with four replications. The observations were recorded on various parameters of fruit characteristics. Analysis of variance showed significant differences among all the cultivars for all the characters under study. Among different cultivars Early Red One, Scarlet Spur II, Oregon Spur II and Gale Gala were early in maturity. Highest yield was recorded in Gale Gala (9.91 kg/tree). Maximum fruit length (62.73 mm) and diameter (69.45 mm) was recorded in Scarlet Spur II whereas, highest fruit weight (155.75 g) in cultivar Granny Smith. Highest TSS (12.05ºB) and total sugars (9.59 %) was recorded in cultivar Gale Gala while, highest ascorbic acid (7.95 mg/g) and total phenol content (79.27 mg/100g) in cultivars Scarlet Spur II and Early Red One, respectively.
