Biochemical evaluation of jamun (Syzygium cuminii Skeels) collections in Kerala


Author(s): Deepika V and Ajith Kumar K

Abstract: The present study entitled “Biochemical evaluation of jamun (Syzygium cuminii Skeels) collections” was undertaken with the objective to evaluate the biochemical characters of jamun collections maintained in the KAU main campus for identifying the superior types. As majority of jamun trees are of seedling origin, they showed tremendous variation in their chemical attributes. KJ- 45 has maximum moisture (82.50 per cent), TSS (15.6o Brix), anthocyanin content (64.35mg/100g), reducing sugar (20.16 per cent) and total sugar (22.95 per cent). Hence, KJ- 45 is considered as superior collection followed by KJ- 48, 47 and 7.
