PHYSICO-CHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF POLYEMBRYONIC MANGO CULTIVARS UNDER NORTH INDIA CONDITIONS
This study was carried out at the Department of Horticulture, Allahabad Agricultural Institute, Deemed University, Allahabad, during 2007. The experiment was laid out in a completely randomized design with four replications and five polyembryonic cultivars namely Bapakai, Vellaiculamban, Goa, Nekkare, and Moovandan. Observations were recorded on physical, morphological, and bio-chemical characters of the fruit. Moovandan had the greatest breadth (7.52 cm), circumference (19.9 cm), fruit weight (231.3 cm), volume (228.4 ml) and juice content (49.0 ml). The highest pulp percentage (67.1%), lowest stone percentage (16.3%), and peel percentage (22.5%) were recorded with Vellaiculamban. Pulp-peel ratio (4.06) and pulp-stone (4.11) ratio, TSS concentration (22.0%), total sugar (14.2%), reducing sugar (2.7%), pH (4.8), and sugar/acid ratio (73.7), were all highest and acidity (0.19%) lowest with Vellaiculamban. The highest value of ascorbic acid (15.9 mg/100 ml) was recorded with Goa.
