Abstract: Citrus are one of the commercially most important fruits in the world. Citrus fruit have good nutritive values which are regarded as a high source of Vit. ‘C’ and also contain vitamin A and B along source with Minerals coupled with high amount of sugar. The demand of these varieties increasing day by day in the market, hence it was very necessary to study the feasibility and suitability for the cultivation of these varieties in the Jalna region. present study was undertaken with the view to compare different physical characters viz. Height of the trees, spread of the trees, Number of days required for harvest from fruit set, Number of fruits per tree, Average fruit weight, Average fruit length, Average fruit breadth, Average peel weight of fruit, Average peel thickness of fruit, Average pomace weight of fruit, Average number of seeds of fruit, Average number of segments of fruit, Average juice weight of fruit and Average peel to juice ratio of fruit. It was clear that the physical and yield parameters of Nucellar was more than Sathgudi hence it is concluded that the Nucellar cultivar is better than Sathgudi in Jalna district.
