Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Phyto-chemical constituent of some wild edible fruits of Sikkim Himalaya” was carried out at Deptt. Of Horticulture Sikkim University during the year 2014-2017. The 10 different wild fruits were collected from different regions of Sikkim Himalaya and phyto-chemical constituent viz., TSS, acidity, ascorbic acid, total sugar, reducing sugar and non reducing sugar were analyzed using standard method of analysis. On the basis of present finding the fruit of Diploknema butyraceae showed maximum TSS (17.46±0.45 oBrix) while minimum in Calamus erectus (2.38±0.30 oBrix), the fruit of Elaeagnus latifolia was found to be highly acidic having titrable acidity value of 3.88±0.17 % followed by Spondiasaxillaris (3.47±0.23 %) whereas, less acidic fruits observed were Diploknema butyraceae (0.007±0.06%) followed by Ficus roxburghii (0.024±0.01 %). Ascorbic acid was found maximum in Baccaurea sapida (51.10±1.40 mg/100 g) and minimm in Calamus erectus (2.20±0.11 mg/100 g). As far as sugar is concerned the fruit of Diploknema butyraceae was showing maximum total, reducing and non-reducing sugar and fruit of Calamus erectus showed less sugar per cent.
