DEPARTMENT OF FRUIT SCIENCE:
After initiation of college, it was a need to separate the various departments for the justification of teaching and research activities. Hence, the Department of Fruit Science was started with multi-functional activities like Teaching, Research and Extension in fruit science. The department is working for teaching and research in fruit science disciplines of horticulture for the students and farmers with following objectives.
OBJECTIVES
1. To provide under graduate education in fruit science discipline.
2. To introduce post graduate programme for fruit science in future.
3. To strengthen the research farm for under graduate students for practical teaching works.
5. To initiate the research in advanced concepts and crop improvement on various fruit crops.
6. To establish the laboratory for UG students.

Mango
1
Farmers of Saurashtra region growing small to medium sized mango (150 to 250g) are advised to grow variety Kesar and alternate of Kesar variety, hybrid variety Amrapali for better yield (47.80 and 43.46 kg/tree, respectively)from thirteen years old tree. Both varieties possess medium sized fruits with attractive colour, flavor, aroma and good taste. 
2017
2
Farmers of Saurashtra region growing medium to large sized mango (250 to 500g) varieties for getting higher yield (57.00 kg/tree) are advised to grow mango hybrid variety Sonparifrom thirteen years old tree. The variety possess good quality with attractive and large sized fruits.
2017

It is recommended to scientific community that the climatic parameters like temperature, humidity, rainfall, BSS hours, and wind velocity influenced the flowering, fruit setting, fruit drop, and number of fruits per plant and fruit yield. Higher day temperature with lower night temperature as well as more fluctuation in day and night temperature disturb the flowering, pollination and fruit setting process. Similarly, higher humidity, dew, late rain or off seasonal rain during dl==flowering also affects adversely. Mango requires 25-30oC day temperature and 15-18oC night temperature, 40-45 % humidity, no due formation, lower late rain (September), higher sun shine hours (8-9 hrs.) during floral bud initiation, flowering and fruit setting (Scientific).
2017
4
It is observed that the growing degree days (GDD) have direct influence on BDS, flowering, fruit set and various fruit development stages, but not for the physical characters of fruits. The GDD requirements of different varieties were found unique and a mango variety Kesar requires low GDD for maturity with higher Heat Use Efficiency (Scientific).
2019

Farmers of South Saurashtra Agro-climatic Zone are advised to spray micronutrients viz., zinc sulfate 24.0 g ( Zn 0.5 % ) and Borax 10.0 g (B 0.1 %) per liter of water during 2nd and 4th month after transplanting for getting higher yield and net return in papaya cv. Madhubindu.
2015
3
The farmers of Suarashtra region growing papaya are advised to grow papaya variety Gujarat Junagadh Papaya-1 (GJP-1). This variety recorded mean fruit yield 33.81 kg/pl. (84.52 t/ha) which was 59.10% higher than the check variety Pusa Dwarf (21.25kg/pl., 53.13 t/ha). The variety GJP-1 is early in flowering with more number of fruits per plant. The fruits are medium in size with pyriform shape and attractive green colour. The fruit possess higher pulp-seed & pulp-peel ratio, higher pulp content, more sugar and good organoleptic characters as compared to Pusa Dwarf.

2021
Custard apple
1
It is inform to scientific community that the climatic parameters like temperature, humidity and rainfall influence the flowering, fruit setting, fruit retention percentage, fruit yield and disease-pests incidence. More humidity and off seasonal rain during March-April insist the first and second reproductive flush and adversely affects the third flush. Optimum temperature and rain leads to more fruit set. Heavy rain during fruit set also tends to more drop with less fruit retention percentage. Mealy bug population is decreasing with increasing rain, whereas, black spot decreases when wind speed is less. Custard apple requires 30-35 0C temperature during flowering and fruit setting, 75-90% humidity and 600-1400 mm even distributed rainfall. Off seasonal rain disturbs the flowering pattern and adversely affects the crop (Scientific).
2012
Sapota
1
Fruit processors are advised to dry the sapota slices of 0.5 cm thickness in solar dryer up to 33 per cent recovery to maintain quality in storage up to six months at room temperature.

Farmers of Saurashtra region growing guava cv. Bhavnagar Red (6 years and above old tree) for mrug bahar crop are advised to apply 1.0 kg urea per plant through drip irrigation and 0.4 kg MOP per plant in soil in four equal splits during June, August, October and December, while, phosphorus (SSP-1.5 kg) as a basal dose with drip system operating for 3.00 hours daily during October to December and 4.00 hours during January to March with 4 drippers per tree, each having discharge 4.00 lit per hour keeping dripper 1.00 meter away from trunk of tree, which will save 40.69% irrigation water for higher production and income.
2012
2
Fruit Processors are advised to use 20 % pulp with 0.3 % acidity and 17 % TSS to prepare a good quality of guava nectar (RTS) stored up to 150 days.
2013
3
