S.M. Luthfur Rahman, G.H. Ghose, M.A. Rahman, M.A.I. Khan and M.S. Hossain


A study on the performance of five genotypes of exotic carambola namely, AC0012, AC0013, AC0014, AC0010 and AC0011 was conducted at the Regional Horticulture Research Station, Akbarpur, Moulvibazar for two years (1998 and 1999). The genotype produced significantly higher plant-1and ha-1 yield over all the genotypes tested. Number of fruits plant-1 was also significantly higher (770.5) in AC0012 than all the genotype except AC0013 (560.5). The genotype AC0012 produced the largest fruit (112.70 g) with maximum size (10.39 x 6.52 cm) while AC0014 produced the smallest fruit (70.75 g) with minimum size (9.16 x 5.28 cm). However, other genotypes produced medium sized fruits ranging from 77.75 to 104.70 g. All the genotypes gave cream fleshed fruits. Texture of flesh of ripe fruit was medium crispy in AC0014, crispy in AC0010 and AC0011 and soft in others. TSS of fruit juice varied from 5.08°B in AC0010 to 7.12° B in AC0012.
