Abstract : The date palm fruit is a very important source of nutrients and cash crop of Sindh, Pakistan due to ideal climatic conditions for its cultivation. There are many varieties of date palm cultivated in region, Sindh but commercially important varieties are Kupro, Karbalian, Aseel, Fasli and Dadhi in relation to sugar, moisture and ash contents. These different varieties were kept under observation in laboratory conditions from August, 2016 to April, 2017. The highest sugar content and moisture percentage observed in Kupro 85.90% and 23% whereas; lowest percentage was 65.50% and 10% in Aseel and Dadhi dry varieties, respectively. Thus, the date palm fruit is known as a potential in various aspects of proteins for the better human body to control the different diseases and support the metabolism process. Therefore, it is recommended to use for the better human health because of attraction of high sugar and moisture contents.
Keywords : Nutritional value, moisture, ash, sugar and P. dactylifera.
