Abstract: Watery rose apples and Malay apples belong to the group of under-exploited fruit crops with a high potential to be put to various uses. A study was conducted to analyse the Physico-chemical attributes of watery rose apples (pink and white) and Malay apples and identify the product suitability of different types. The collected fruits were grouped based on colour, and Physico-biochemical characters were analysed separately. The evaluation revealed the variation among the three types (pink watery rose apple, white watery rose apple and Malay apple) and among accessions within types. Mean fruit weight was higher for Malay apple. No significant variation was observed among the accessions of white and Malay apple in the percentage recovery of pulp. Variation among different size groups was significant only in Malay apple. The suitability of fruits for preparing various products was selected based on their biochemical characteristics.
