Abstract

Survey and characterization of ambarella found in valley region of Manipur was conducted during 2022–23 to identified superior genotypes for yield and various physio-biochemical characters having sweeter taste and high yield traits. Genotype P7 gave maximum yield (147.10 kg/tree) and P19 has maximum fruit weight (158.50 g), length (7.09 cm) and width (6.65 cm). However, genotypes P17 has highest TSS (170Brix), total sugar (6.84%), P7 highest vitamin C (40.81 mg/100 g) and P19 gave highest vitamin A content (0.62 mg/100 g). Hence, genetic diversity of ambarella was observed among the selected genotypes in valley region of Manipur for screening elite genotypes for the future.
