Abstract:
Frye Litchi cultivars viz Purbi, Bedana, Serai, Bombai and Gola were evaluated for their morphological characteristics and physic-chemical composition. The highest yield of 15.52 kg per plant was recorded in cv. Serai compared to the least (7.72 kg/Tree) by Bedana. The mean fruit weight, length diameter were 13.94 g. 3.20 cm and 2.55 cm respectively. Reducing, non-reducing and total sugars varied from 4.47 to 6.92, 4.10 to 5.30 and 8.60 to 11.60% respectively. Vitamin-C content ranged from 45.72 to 60.02 mg/100g pulp. "Bedana" proved to be of the best quality with low acidity and highest sugars; TSS Vitamin-C and pulp contents.
