3 tab. 3 ref. Sum. (En)

The influence of season on harvest pattern, pod and bean characters of cacao were studied in areca-cacao mixed cropping system. Two peaks of harvest were recognised on harvest patterns, April to July (71.04 per cent) and November-December (17.76 per cent). The wet season (June-August) accounted 42.75 per cent and the remaining 57.25 per cent was harvested during dry period. The studies on pod characters has indicated that the pod weight was low in wet season as compared to dry season. Analysis of bean characters have revealed higher pulp percentage and lower total soluble solids and bean weight in wet season as compared to dry season.
