Abstract

Maximum plant height was recorded in double hedgerow system with higher number of plants/ha. However, maximum values of tree spread and trunk diameter were recorded in square system of planting with lowest number of plants/ha. Yield per tree was affected non-significantly by different planting systems. However, highest yield per hectare (262.26 q/ha) was recorded in double hedgerow system of planting. Fruit quality parameters like fruit weight, TSS, ascorbic acid and sugar contents were also affected non-significantly by different planting system.
