Abstract: Efforts are being made to diversify the citrus industry by induction of some suitable cultivars of sweet orange, being the best choice after Nucellar in Marathwada region. Investigations were carried out at the regional Sweet Orange Research Station, Badnapur of the Vasantrao Naik Marathwada Agricultural University, Parbhani on sweet orange genotypes for growth, quality and yield performance. The results were statistically significant for all the traits studied. The variety Nucellar found significantly superior in case of plant height, Number of branches plant spread and girth of stem while incase of number of fruits/tree, weight of fruit and fruit diameter variety Valencia late found significantly superior. Peel thickness found significantly minimum in Sathgudi. TSS, titrable acidity and reducing sugar found significantly maximum in Pera Orange and Katol gold and at par with Blood red in case of titrable acidity. The maximum juice perentage was found in Sathgudi followed by Blood Red. The number of seed per fruit found significantly minimum in Blood red and Jaffa. The pH found significantly superior in Nucellar and vitamin ‘C’ content was found significantly maximum in case of Blood red. The sugur acid ratio was recorded significantly maximum in Katol gold and at par with Pera Orange and Nucellar. The maximum juice percentage was found in Sathgudi followed by Blood Red. The yield per tree was found significantly maximum in variety Valancia Late and which was at par with Variety Nucellar and Jaffa.
