NUNES, VALTÂNIA XAVIER et al. REPEATABILITY OF FRUIT QUALITY TRAITS OF CACTUS PEAR. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.5, e-481.  Epub 18-Dez-2017. ISSN 0100-2945.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0100-29452017481.

Repeatability analysis has been used to study traits in several crops, assisting in the definition of the minimum number needed to evaluate genotypes more efficiently and with less time and resource consumption. So far, however, no repeatability studies on cactus pear have been found in the literature. The objective of this study was to determine the coefficient of repeatability for cactus pear fruits traits and the minimum number of evaluations (fruit) that can provide acceptable accuracy for the prediction of the true value. The experiment was conducted at the Federal Institute of Bahia/Campus Guanambi, with 150 fruits collected from three municipalities in the state of Bahia. The coefficients of repeatability were estimated by the methods of analysis of variance, principal components based on the covariance (PCCV) and correlation (PCC) matrices, and structural analysis based on the correlation matrix (SA). The analysis of variance showed that, except for fruit diameter, the effect of the production site (municipality) was significant for all traits evaluated. The PCCV method was proven the most suitable for studying the repeatability of quality traits of cactus pear fruits. Seven fruits were required to determine, with 90% confidence, the traits length, diameter, fruit firmness, skin thickness, number of seeds, fruit mass, bark mass, pulp mass, pH, titratable acidity, soluble solids, SS/AT ratio, and pulp yield.
