ASSOCIATION OF FRUIT SHAPE INDEX AND QUALITY CHARACTERS IN TOMATO

Published on

Sixty fOlu tomato lines were evaluated for analysis of fruit shape index, total solids, total
soluble solids, insoluble solids, juice yield, acidity, pH, reducing sugar, consistency,
lycopene, 10culesJfruit, and pericarp thickness. Positive correlation was observed between
fruit shape index and consistency, pericarp thickness, insoluble solids, lycopene, total
solids, pH, and TSS. The analysis confirmed that fruits with high shape index have fewer
locules, thick pericarp, high total solids, insoluble solids, consistency, lycopene and pH but
low acidity and reducing sugar.
