An experiment to evaluate the coconut hybrids for tender nut was conducted at Coconut Research
Station, Aliyar nagar during 2017-18. Seven cross combinations along with eight parents were
studied. The nuts were harvested at tender nut stage and the quantitative traits like nut weight,
volume of nut water and qualitative traits viz., pH, TSS, Total sugars, reducing sugar, non-reducing
sugar, sodium and potassium were recorded. Among the hybrids COD x WCT significantly differed
from other hybrids for volume of tender nut water, sodium and potassium content which is mostly
preferred for the tender nut quality.
Key Words: Hybrids, Tender nut, Quantitative traits and qualitative traits.
