Abstract

Fifteen strawberry cultivars were evaluated for various yield, fruit and quality characters during 1999-2000 and 2000-2001. The results revealed that cultivar Chandler exhibited maximum fruit length (3.49 cm), breadth (3.14 cm), berry weight (9.62 g), yield per plot (1.18 g) and total sugars (6.81%). ‘Pajaro’ exhibited higher TSS (12.17oB) and TSS/acid ratio (14.02oB). Acidity was found highest (1.14%) in ‘Catskill’, while sugar/acid ratio was found highest (11.04) in ‘Selva’. With regard to yield, fruit and quality characters, cultivar Chandler and Selva stand promising in mid hills of Himachal Pradesh.
