Abstract

The study revealed that NAA 100 ppm + GA3 100 ppm was found to be more effective in fruits carried upto maturity as well as fruit growth post monsoon thus while during the spring season NAA 100 ppm + GA3 25 ppm was found more effective in fruit carried upto maturity and accelerating fruit growth. With regard to the qualitative parameters, the fruit treated with NAA 100 ppm + GA3 100 ppm were found superior in T.S.S. reducing sugars non reducing sugar and total sugar content of fruits total titrable acidity was found less in fruits treated both NAA 100 ppm + GA3 100 ppm during both the seasons.
