Abstract:

A survey was conducted in different locations of Imphal East (Wangkhei, Khurai, Pourabi and Takhel) and Senapati districts of Manipur, India during the period 2017-2018 for the documentation on the variability of Elaeagnus species (Heiyai, in Manipuri) in this region. These plants are found wild or in the homestead garden and grow well both in the hill and valley region of Manipur. From the investigation, it was noticed that significant variation exists in fruit morphology (shape and size), fruit colour, fruit quality and seed shape characters among the different genotypes collected from studied areas. Analysis on its different physico-chemical quality parameters revealed that the TSS ranges from 7.6 to 13° Brix and the fruit physical parameters like fruit pedicel, fruit weight, seed weight, seed length, seed width, pulp weight, protein, carbohydrate, Vitamin C, TSS and acidity of the fruit among the different genotypes are found to be significantly varied. However, the biochemical marker (SDS PAGE) revealed monomorphic banding pattern and no variation was found in among the genotypes which can further be confirmed using molecular marker in the near future.
