Author(s): Saurabh Verma, Ravi Shankar Verma, Shyam Sundar and Amrendra Kumar
Abstract: The current study was conducted in 2021-22 at the Department of Horticulture, School of Agricultural Sciences and Technology in Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, (A Central University) Vidya Vihar, Rae Bareli Road, Lucknow. Fruits of six genotypes of guava were collected from Central Institute for Subtropical Horticulture (A unit of ICAR) Rehmankhera, P.O. Kakori, Lucknow, (U.P.) and two genotypes of guava were collected from progressive farmer (R.S.Verma Sultanpur). This research focused on eight guava genotypes: Lalit, Shweta, CISHG-1, CISHG-31, Allahabad Safeda, L-49, Taiwan and VNR Bihi. Fruit samples from each variety was placed in a cotton bag and assigned a treatment/variety number before being transferred for analysis in the laboratory of the department and then stored until the measurement was done. Highest T.S.S. (12.44%) was noted in the T6 (L-49) variety. The maximum percentage of acidity (0.48%) was found in the T5 (Allahabad Safeda) variety. T6 variety (L-49) showed the high ascorbic acid (290.60 mg/100 gm pulp) and reducing sugar (7.25%) content. The non-reducing sugar was found maximum (4.28%) in the T5 (Allahabad Safeda) variety. The total sugar (13.78%) was recorded to be highest in the T3 (CISHG-1) variety.
