Average Weight and volume of amri apple were comparatively higher i.e., 104.6 gm and 129mL as compared with others. The median pH value is 3.91, the median percentage of moisture, ash and brix is 81.95%, 1.63% and 15.02%, respectively. The percentage of Fat lies between 0.2-5.15%, Fiber lies b/w 1.13 -8.60%, protein lies b/w 0.17-0.74% and pectin lies b/w 0.43-1.63%. The highest value of total sugar of Samootree is comparatively high i.e., 20.13, the concentration of reducing sugar in kaja were comparatively low i.e., 7.10 and the concentration of non reducing sugar in Green Sleevesis was comparatively higher than other verities i.e., 7.92.
