Abstract: The performance of ber in new alluvial zone of West Bengal with twelve varieties (Apple Kul, Banarasi Karaka, BAU-1, Dandan, Gola, Illaichi, Jogia, Kaithali, Madhavpur, Sanur- 2, Topa and Umran) was carried out at Horticulture Research Station, Mondouri, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya in the year 2013-14 with an objective of screening suitable ber varieties. A wide range of variation was noted in respect of yield, fruit weight, pulp weight, pulp : stone ratio, acidity, TSS : acid ratio and organoleptic rating among twelve varieties. Fruit yield was found higher in Madhavpur (50.8 kg.plant-1), Umran (47.6 kg plant-1) and Topa (42.8 kg plant-1) but pulp weight and fruit weight were found higher in BAU-1, Banarasi Karaka and Umran. The quality in respect of TSS/acid ratio of fruit was noted maximum in Madhavpur (155). It is concluded that the performance of Madhavpur, Banarasi Karaka, Umran and BAU-1 are comparatively superior in new alluvial zone of West Bengal as compared to other varieties.
