SARDAR was studied. Sardar showed best performance on Portugal rootstock in terms of fruit set, retention and fruit yield. The mean maximum fruit length and breadth was recorded on Pear Shaped and Banarsi Surkha, respectively. Fruit quality in terms of fruit weight and TSS was the highest on Sindhajli followed by Portugal but vitamin C content was the highest on Chittidar during both the years.
