Abstract:
Ten edible tomato genotypes and their hybrids were investigated with one check variety in 2018–2019. Fruit quality parameters like vitamin C, total soluble solids, lycopene and titrable acidity were evaluated. Among parents, Arka Meghali was recorded highest mean value for vitamin C (20 mg/100g). PKM 1 was recorded high mean value for TSS (5.83 0Brix). Akshaya was recorded high mean value for Lycopene (20.18 mg/100g). Lowest mean value for titratable acidity was recorded by Anagha (0.17%). Among the hybrids, L1T1, L1T2, L1T3, L2T3, L4T1, L4T3, L6T2, L7T1, L7T2 and L7T3 were recorded high mean value for Vitamin C (16 mg/100g). L5T2 and L7T2 were recorded high mean value for Total soluble solids (5.50 0 Brix). Highest mean value for Lycopene was recorded by L7T2 (23.92 mg/100g). L1T3 was recorded lowest mean value for titratable acidity (0.17%). Therefore, choosing these genotypes and hybrids will enhance the flexibility of farmers and traders to when and where to market their fresh tomatoes in order to make maximum profit.
