The present investigation was carried out in order to find different physico-chemical characteristics of two varieties of pomegranate fruits namely Ganesh and Arakta cultivated around Lonand (Khandala) of Satara district. The study reveals that, the morphological characteristics such as colour of fruit vary from yellowish with pink patches in Ganesh and dark red for Arakta variety. The average weight of fruit found was 270.7g and 258.4g for Ganesh and Arakta cultivars. The edible and waste index was found 61 % and 37% for Ganesh variety while for Arakta variety it was and 59 % and 41 % respectively. The chemical parameters of fruit determined were total soluble solid (TSS) acidity and pH. Efforts were also made to quantify the amount of reducing sugars and vitamin C contents for both varieties. The results indicate that the values are comparable in both the varieties with minor variation.
