Abstract:

The present investigation was undertaken at experimental fields of Division of Fruit Science, SKUAST-Kashmir, during the year 2014. In order to solve the problems of low productivity, poor quality, less colour and irregular bearing habits in current apple plantations in Kashmir valley, two apple varieties namely Super Chief Sandidge and Fuji Zehn Aztec were imported from Italy on M9T337 rootstock and planted at a distance of 1.5× 3m on four wire trellis system (2222 trees/ha). Following characteristics were recorded: tree height, TCSA, shoot length, leaf area, First flower opening, End of flowering, fruit set, fruit leaf ratio, yield, fruit weight, L/D ratio, TSS (total soluble solids) titrable acidity, TSS/acid ratio and juice yield. The study revealed that both the varieties performed well under Kashmir conditions, however the variety Super Chief Sandidge showed better performance interms of both yield and quality attributes compared to Fuji Zehn Aztec. Fuji Zehn Aztec appeared to be more vigorous and low yielding compared to Super Chief Sandidge.
