Based on cumulative assessment of the characters studied during survey of guava orchards in Sawai Madhopur district during 2014-15, it appeared that Gola (Barfkhan) is better over L-49 and Allahabad Safeda with respect to fruit weight, size, thickness of flesh, weight of pure flesh excluding seed cavity, soft texture of seeds, ascorbic acid contents and TSS content which are marketing traits for the guava varieties. In this variety maximum fruit weight (375.87g) and equatorial diameter (82.89 mm) was recorded. This variety had maximum yield of 1.0-1.5 q/tree which was 0.80 and 0.60 q/tree in case of L-49 and Allahabad Safeda, respectively. Gola (Barfkhan) variety’s fruit was crunchy in texture with soft seeds. Spreading growth behaviour, compact canopy, green leaf luster and solitary bearing habit were other features of this variety.
