The experiment was conducted from April 01 to June 30, 2007 at Horticulture Laboratory of Agrotechnology Discipline, Khulna University, Khulna, Bangladesh. Outcome of fruit orientation, on the quality of litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn.) was examined in five cultivars viz; Deshi, Bedana, Bombai, Mojaffori and Chaina-3. Fruit was single out from upper and lower half portions of the tree and was subjected to physio-chemical analysis. Significant difference was found for all the parameters studied. The fruit at lower half was heavy in weight, pericarp and flesh with high acidity. However, stone weight, pH value, Vitamin C content and non-reducing sugars were found more in fruits collected from upper half of the tree. Picking might be initiated from lower half of the plant to find superior quality fruits.Download
