Title: VOLATILE COMPONENTS OF 2 PAPAYA CULTIVARS
Author: FRANCO, MRB

Abstract: The volatile components of two papaya cultivars (Solo and Formosa) from the same geographic region (Bahia) and of the same cultivar (Solo) from two geographic regions (Bahia and Para) were investigated during two consecutive years, 1991 and 1992. The three lots analysed for each cultivar from the same geographic location showed great variability, especially in the first year. However, some marked differences between cultivars could be observed. The cultivar Solo presented high percentage of linalool (up to 94%); generally, the second most abundant constituent was trans linalool oxide. The cultivar Formosa generally presented a greater proportion of the cis oxide (thus the major component) and the second most abundant component was linalool. The esters methyl butanoate, crotonate and hexanoate varied markedly in their relative percentages, reaching in some chromatograms a very high relative proportion in 1991. The volatile composition of the Solo cultivar from the two different geographic region did not differ, with the exception of methyl butanoate, which presented a relative percentage of 18% in one sample from Bahia in 1991.
