Abstract:

Forty two Physico-chemical characters recorded from 32 accessions of Lime, Lemon and Pseudo limon accessions collected from four districts of Himachal Pradesh in India were subjected to diversity studies. Descriptive statistics showed vast variation in Fruit size, Fruit rind thickness, petiole wing width and numbers of seeds / fruit. PCA showed a total of 30 components of which first ten accounted for 87.24% of variability. Jaccard’s similarity matrix showed highest similarity value of 0.59, the least similarity value of 0.1 and the average similarity of all 32 accessions were 0.31. The UPGMA tree obtained by Jaccard’s similarity matrix divided all 32 accessions in to three major species specific clusters with few acceptions. Mantel test () showed positive linear correlation between UPGMA tree and the distance matrix. 2D and 3D scatter plots were in support of the UPGMA clustering pattern.
