Author(s): Vijay Agrawal, NR Rangare and Reena Nair
Abstract: A survey was carried out during 2016 in Madhya Pradesh, India to identify elite genotypes of jamun. Morphological qualitative, quantitative characteristics and biochemical attributes of sixteen genotypes were studied. The study revealed that there was a wide variation among the accessions. JJ-5 was the most promising genotype among the 16 accessions for average fruit weight (55.40 g), fruit length (27.78 mm), fruit width (22.01 mm), pulp weight (31.60 g) and seed weight (14.70g). This genotype can be used for table purpose as well for preparation of seed powder. The biochemical characteristics also showed high variability among all the accessions of jamun. Maximum TSS was found in JJ-4 (21.25°Brix) and JJ-3 (19.85 °Brix). Acidity was highest (0.53%) in JJ-9 and ascorbic acid in JJ-15 (42.30 (mg/100 g).
