Abstract

The present investigations were carried out in Department of Fruit Science, College of Horticulture and Forestry, Jhalawar during 2010-2011 to assess morphometric variations and genetic variability in bael fruits grown in Hadoti region to explore the possibility for using them as rootstock under high rainfall conditions of Hadoti region. Morphometric studies revealed that fruit weight ranged from minimum from 57.95g in T6 landrace to maximum 1068.66g in T3 landrace; fruit length ranged from minimum (4.64 cm) in T6 landrace to maximum (12.35 cm) in T3 landrace; fruit width ranged from minimum (5.06 cm) in T6 landrace to maximum (12.19 cm) in T3 landrace; number of seeds/fruit varied from minimum (62.66) in T6 landrace to maximum 305.33 in T14 landrace; skull thickness ranged from minimum (2.83 mm) in T15 landrace to maximum (6.32 mm) in T3 landrace; Based on fruit shape, six landraces T1, T2 , T3 , T5 , T8 , T9 and T11 showed obovate shape; T4 landrace exhibited elliptical shape; six landraces T6 , T7, T12 , T13 , T14 and T15 showed round shape and T10 landrace exhibited oblong fruit shape. Pulp weight ranged from minimum (16.34 g) in T6 landrace tomaximum (469.52 g) in T3 landrace; however pulp percentage ranged from minimum (22.41%) in T8 landrace to maximum (49.23%) in T2 landrace. Data on biochemical analysis revealed significant diversity among all landraces studied. TSS content was found maximum in T7 landrace; ascorbic acid content was estimated maximum in T3 landrace. The fruits of T7 landrace exhibited lowest acidity value.
