Abstract: The present investigation entitled “Evaluation of custard apple genotypes” was carried out at Satpuda Botanical Garden, Horticulture Section, College of Agriculture, Nagpur during 2022 to 2023 with the objective to find out the desirable custard apple genotypes and to study the yield and quality parameters of custard apple genotypes. The experiment was laid out in t-test with non-replicated trial with 22 genotypes of custard apple and Balanagar (check). All the genotypes were evaluated based on yield parameters. In respect of yield parameters, the maximum number of fruits were recorded in genotype NCA-16 i.e., 102 fruits/plant and the maximum yield/plant (15.52 kg) and yield/ha (15.52 t) was recorded in genotype NCA-3. The fruit quality parameters like fruit weight, peel weight, pulp weight was maximum (315.5 g, 160.50 g and 141.2 g respectively) in genotype NCA-3 with pulp content (46.02%), pericarp content (48.01%) and seed content (5.92%). The maximum length and breadth of fruit (13.60 cm and 13.30 cm) was recorded in genotype NCA-3 and NCA-15 respectively. The minimum number of seeds and seed weight (8.90 and 8.20 g) was recorded in genotype NCA-22.
