An experiment was conducted at the Agricultural Research Station, AAU, Jabugam during seasons of the year 2015-16. The experiment consisted of eight treatment combinations comprised of four varieties (viz. V1.Grand Naine, V2.Robusta, V3.Mahalaxmi and V4.William) and two planting materials (viz. P1.Tissue culture plants and P2. Suckers), and conducted in RBD with factorial concept with four replications. The soil of the experimental field was sandy loam in texture. All the plants were planted at 1.80 m spacing with one plant per hole. With regard to the quality parameters, the significantly higher value of TSS (22.03 ºB) was observed in Grand Naine variety followed by William variety (21.04 ºB). In case of carbohydrates (23.45 %) and reducing (13.25 %) were found significantly the highest under variety Grand Naine, where non reducing sugar (10.19 %) was found not significant due to different varieties of banana. Significantly lower TSS, Carbohydrates, Reducing and non-reducing sugars were observed in variety Mahalaxmi. Planting of banana through tissue culture plants significantly increased carbohydrates (22.79) and non-reducing sugar (10.20 %) than planting through suckers, but in case of TSS and Reducing sugar were significantly found unchanged due to different planting materials.
