Abstract:
Evaluation of custard apple local selections was undertaken during 2018 at Department of Fruit Science, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi, Belgaum district. Twenty five local selections of custard apple were evaluated with Balanagar variety as check for yield characters along with various physical characteristics of fruit. It was observed that selection CLS-9 recorded maximum number of fruits per plant (34.00) and fruit yield (4.36 kg/plant). Physical parameters viz. fruit length (8.49 cm), fruit breadth (8.44 cm), fruit volume (170.50 ml), fresh weight of the fruit (198.42 g) and ripe weight of the fruit (176.10 g) was recorded maximum in selection CLS-16 than the check variety Balanagar. However, Maximum pulp weight, pulp per cent and pulp-peel ratio was noticed in selection CLS-18 (75.32 g, 46.84% and 1.56 respectively). Minimum peel weight (36.79 g), minimum number of seeds per fruit (14.17) and seed weight (3.81g) was recorded in selection CLS-1.
