Known as Vitamin C, its concentration in fruitshas been a primary consideration for people to choose what kind of fruit they are going to consume.This experiment’s result exhibited different levels of ascorbic acid in some tropical fruits. Averageconcentration of ascorbic acid from the highest to lowest was obtained in avocado,orange, strawberry,guava, apple, papaya, tamarind and mango with their contents of 119,8; 96,8; 66,65; 49,86; 49,57; 48,4and 41,06 mg/100g, respectively.
