Phenotypic evaluation of fruit traits of two half sib families of feijoa (Acca sellowiana Berg.) from an orchard in São Joaquim, Santa Catarina. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2003, vol.25, n.3, pp. 475-479. ISSN 0100-2945. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-29452003000300029.
Fruits of a commercial orchard originated by seedlings from two plants were evaluated, with the objective to characterize the phenotypic variation. Statistical differences were found among family means in at least two years for fruit diameter and solids soluble contents, but not for fruit length and pulp revenue. There were statistically significant differences in means among year means, within each family, for all the fruits traits, except for fruit weight between 1998 and 1999 in both families, and for soluble solids contents between 1998 and 1999 for family 1 and between 1999 and 2000 for the other family. The most important correlations and regressions among productive traits were obtained among fruit weight and peel weight, fruit weight and length, fruit weight and diameter, peel weight and length, peel weight and diameter and length and diameter.
