Abstract

The results of polysaccharides fractions contents definition in the fruits jujube four cultivated forms of Ukrainian selection are presented in this article. During ripening increased content of sugars, decreases content of water-soluble polysaccharides (this fraction is absent in mature fruits), pectin substances and hemicellulose amount, while increasing the content of hemicellulose A. The content of pectin substances in mature fruits of jujube ranges from 0.88% to 1.29%, hemicellulose B - from 1.06% to 2.07%, hemicellulose A - from 0.16% to 0.38% in terms of galacturonic acid.
