Abstract:
The present study was conducted during early kharif, 2013 at College of Horticulture, Anantharajupeta for evaluating quality parameters on eleven genotypes (IIHR-2871, IIHR-2872, IIHR-2873, IIHR-2751, IIHR-2753, IIHR-2876, Laila, Roja, Ruhi, Sheeja, AFA 602). With respect to quality parameters was maximum TSS was recorded in Roja followed by Laila, titrable acidity was higher in IIHR-2873 followed by Roja, highest ascorbic acid content was recorded in IIHR-2753 followed by Ruhi, superior lycopene content was recorded with genotype Roja followed by Laila. The genotype Roja followed by IIHR-2871 recorded significantly maximum reducing sugars content. IIHR-2753 followed by Sheeja showed maximum values for non-reducing sugars. The genotypes, Roja and Laila were found to be promising as they recorded higher values of TSS and lycopene content and reducing sugars which can be better exploited in the market and processing industry.
