Abstract

To evaluate spacing impact on fruit quality, Kinnow mandrin (Citrus reticulata blanco) and Sweet
orange Cv. Musambi (Citrus sinensis L.) were selected and planted at three different plant spacing i.e. T1 (11 × 22 ft),
T2 (11 × 11 ft) and T3 (22 × 22 ft) at Postgraduate Agriculture Research Station (PARS), University of
Agriculture Faisalabad. It was observed that trees planted at 11 × 22 ft spacing showed optimum fruit development
and quality attributes. Maximum number of fruits per plant (26.98), average fruit diameter (65.48mm), average fruit
weight (141.11 g) with maximum fruit juice percentage (51.48%) pH of juice (5.52), TA (1.31%) and reducing
sugars (2.30 %) were observed in 11 × 22 ft plants spacing. Highly dense plantation of trees at 11 × 11 ft resulted in
