Abstract

The ripe fruits of 20 selected varieties of guava were analyzed for their physico-chemical characters under malwa plateau of Madhya Pradesh. Significant variation in fruit characters i.e. size, weight, volume, pulp, seed, seed/pulp ratio, TSS, acidity, reducing sugar, non reducing sugar, total sugar and ascorbic acid content were recorded among various varieties. In general, Allahabad safeda and Lucknow-49 was superior as compared to other varieties/germplasm in relation to different physico-chemical parameters of fruit. The other varieties/germplasm i.e. Rewa-72, Dharidar, Apple
colour and Gwalior-27 was also superior in some of the characters as compared to the other
varieties/germplasm.

Keywords
