In the present study fruits are considered to provide a wide range of mineral elements. Minor fruits of south Gujarat specially Artocarpus heterophyllus L., Tamarindus indica L., Zizyphus mauritiana L. and Emblica officinalis L. are mainly conserved and consumed by tribals in very restricted area though have every potentiality of production in this environmental conditional survey experiment was undertaken to determine mineral in above mentioned minor fruits. The micro and macronutrient like N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Fe, Zn, Mn and Cu were highest in jackfruits Artocarpus heterophyllus L. taken from Karadi, Bardoliand Songadh regions of South Gujarat and Amla fruit had the higher content of Fe, Mn and Cu found grown in Pardi side fruits and maximum value Zn was reported in Gandevi fruits. It can be conferred from the result exploring the source of mineral composition of minor fruits, may increase the consumption of these fruits as food supplements and encourage their cultivation, conservation by the native tribal user and farmer community of the south Gujarat region.

Keywords: Mineral elements, Jackfruits, Tamarind, Amla and Jujube.
