Abstract

Eight varieties of pomegranate were evaluated under scarce rainfall zone at
Horticultural Research Station, Anantapur for 3 years from 2004-2006 in 9 years’ old
plants. Out of 8 varieties the average plant height (2.64 m) and No. of branches/plant
(3.7) were recorded highest in Jodhpur red followed by Jalor seedless. Highest stem
girth was recorded (34.3 cm) in Ganesh followed by P 23 (32.8 cm). Plant spread was
highest in Jalor seedless (6.4 m3) followed by Muscat (5.1 m3). The fruit yield i.e. No. of
fruits/plant was recorded highest (61.6) in Ganesh followed by G 137 (59). Ganesh with
highest yield i.e. No. of fruits/plant (61.6) and G 137 (59) were best suitable to scarce
rainfall areas in poor fertile soils.
