A trial conducted to evaluate different plant growth regulators viz., NAA (50, 75 and 100 ppm), GA3 (50, 75 and 100 ppm), Ethrel (100, 200 and 300 ppm) and control was undertaken at farmers field Malegaon Tal. Badnapur, Dist- Jalna during the year 2016- 2017.The plant growth regulators were sprayed two times i.e. first spray given at flowering stage and second at fruit set stage. The maximum fruit weight (186.35g), fruit volume (180.20cc), fruit length (7.12cm), fruit breadth (7.24cm), pulp weight (115.30g) fruit yield (44.72 qt/ha) and minimum rind weight (59.41 g) was recorded with spraying of GA3 75 ppm. Whereas, minimum number of seeds per fruit (38.22) was recorded in treatment of GA3 100ppm, significantly the maximum total soluble solids (26.55 oB) was recorded in treatment of Ethrel 300 ppm.
