COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF CUCURBITACIN C AND E IN TRICHOSANTHES DIOICA ROXB. COLLECTED FROM NINE AGRO CLIMATIC ZONES IN MAHARASHTRA, INDIA

Bhagat Sachin S., Palathingal Trisa

Abstract


Cucurbitaceae is an important family having a large number of fruit vegetables rich in the glycoside Cucurbitacin which is a very important nutraceutical compound. The Cucurbitacin content of these fruit vegetables are known to vary due to environmental conditions. It was thought necessary to estimate the Cucurbitacin content in Trichosanthes dioica Roxb from nine agro climatic zones of Maharashtra collected in the  summer and winter season to ascertain the  best region and best  season  for maximum cucurbitacin content.
