Abstract

The different chemicals namely CaCl 2 Ca(NO 3) 2 and KH 2PO 4 at one per cent and two percent concentrations were sprayed at 90 days after full anthesis, (DAFA) on the trees. It was found that aril and juice Percentage were markedly enhanced by 2 per cent KH 2PO 4 ‘spray’ while that of seed hardness was not responded to any treatment. The chemical paramenters like total soluble solids and ascorbic acid content were greatly increased with 2 per cent Ca(NO 3) 2 spray while the highest total and reducing sugars were recorded with 2 per cent KH 2PO 4. The other chemical parameters like acidity and anthocyanin content remained unchanged.
