Coheritability and predicted response to selection in litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.)

, : Coheritability and predicted response to selection in litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.). Journal of Research, Birsa Agricultural University 8(1): 21-24

Information on co-heritability and correlated response was derived from data on 8 quality components in 11 litchi cultivars grown during 1992 at Mondouri, West Bengal, India. There was positive and high co-heritability for sugar/acid ratio with total soluble solids (TSS), aril weight, reducing sugar, fruit acidity, total sugar, TSS/acid ratio and ascorbic acid.
