Abstract:

Arka Sahan is one of important variety of custard apple. It is popular because of its exhalent flavour and taste. The present experiment was carried out mainly to enhance fruit weight, pulp recovery and reduce the seed. The study under taken in Regional Horticultural Research and Extension Station, University of Horticultural Sciences campus, Bengaluru. The study revealed that the combination of GA3 1000 ppm + assisted pollination recorded maximum increment in fruit weight (409.13g), pulp weight (307.90g), Pulp recovery (75.21 %), Pulp: Peel ratio (4.63) and Pulp: seed ratio (23.12). The study also recorded lowest Peel content (12.25 %) and Seed content (3.24 %) in the treatment GA3 1000 ppm + Hand pollination. Among different treatment the combination of GA3 1000 ppm + assisted pollination shows best result in custard apple cv. Arka sahan.
