Studies on the Fruit Characteristics, Bio-chemical Composition and Storage Behaviour of Litchi Varieties

M. S. Islam, M. Ibrahim, M. A. Rahman, M. A. Uddin and S. K. Biswas    

Abstract: A study was carried out on six litchi varieties, for their fruit characteristics, bio-chemical composition and storage behaviour. The results showed significant difference among varieties. The fruit weight ranged from 14.36-23.97 g, percent recovery of flesh 60.58 - 71.16, TSS 16.78-19.55% and total sugar 10.0-19.2%. Rottage loss was highest in Green (81.86%) and the lowest in China-3 (37.03%). None of the varieties was found superior in all respect. However, considering the important characteristics, the fruits of BARI litchi-1 and China-3 were considered highly acceptable.
