Author(s): Tejraj Singh Hada and Anil Kumar Singh
Abstract: The present investigation was conducted at the Horticulture Unit, Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, U.P., India during the year 2014-15 and 2015-16. The main aim was to investigate the physical characteristics and quality parameters of different mango cultivars. Outcome of the present research work revealed that maximum fruit length (14.38 cm), fruit breadth (8.08 cm), fruit weight (382.78 g) and fruit volume (373.67 ml) was observed in cv. Mallika. Specific gravity ranged between 1.013 to 1.074. Maximum T.S.S. (24.10°Brix), minimum acidity percentage (0.18%) and maximum value of T.S.S./acid ratio (137.38) was observed in Cv. Chausa. Maximum ascorbic acid was recorded in cultivar Langra (51.78 mg/100g) while, maximum total carotenoides content was found in cultivar Amrapali (8.78 mg/100 g).
