Abstract: The present investigations were carried out for the development of chutney from wild pomegranate fruit and its quality evaluation during storage of six months. Different combinations of arils, sugar and mint were tried and analysed on the basis of physico-chemical and sensory quality attributes to standardize proper combination for chutney. The chutney prepared by following the best selected recipe (60 % arils, 40 % sugar and 10 % of mint) was packed in glass and PET jars and stored for six months under ambient and refrigerated storage conditions. Chutney could be safely stored for a period of six months under both storage conditions without many changes in quality characteristics. However, changes were slower in refrigerated storage conditions as compared to that under ambient conditions. Both the packaging materials viz. PET and glass jars were found suitable, with comparatively less changes occurring in glass jars stored under refrigerated conditions.
