ABSTRACT

The present studies were made on the performance of six imported cultivars and one local selection of almond strain at the Horticultural Research Station, Soan Valley Nowshera, Khushab during 1997 to 1999. Local selection almond strain gave a little earlier bloom while all other cultivars were late. However, all tested cultivars matured at the same time during second week of July. Jordonela, Non-perial, Neplus-Ultra, Vesta and Mission are thin shelled while local selection kernel percentage were produced by Jordonela and minimum in Mission and local selection. Is medium thick shell. Maximum nut length, nut thickness, kernel length, kernel weight and kernel percentage were produced by Jordenela and minimum in Mission and local selection. Yield in terms of number of fruit per tree and nut weight per tree was maximum in Nepus-Ultra followed by Non-Perial and Jordonola. Kernel breadth was maximum in Mission. On the basis of overall performance, qualitatively Jordonola performed the best and quantitatively Nepus-Ultra and Non-perial were found better.
