Pod fragrance in dolichos bean is being routinely assessed by organoleptic (smelling) means. Phenotyping pod fragrance by organoleptic means is highly subjective. The relativity and subjectivity associated with organoleptic means of phenotyping pod fragrance could be overcome by objective means, that is by analyzing and quantifying trans 2-Dodecenoic acid and trans 2-Tetradecenoic acids, the key fatty acids (FA) in the pod exudates of dolichos bean. An attempt was made to characterize recombinant inbred lines (RIL) population derived from two connected crosses for pod fragrance by quantifying the two key FA in pod exudates and to explore correspondence between organoleptic and objective means of phenotyping pod fragrance. The variability among RIL was substantial for both the FA as indicated by the estimates of absolute and standardized range and PCV. The positively skewed platykurtic distribution of RIL population for both the key FA indicated that the pod fragrance is controlled by fewer genes with complementary epistasis. The concentration of the two FA in pod exudates of the best 10 RILs of both the populations were higher than that of the mean by at least 60 per cent. The RIL 3-3 was one of the best 10 RIL with respect to concentration of trans 2-Tetradecenoic acid and promising for fresh pods plant-1, fresh pod yield plant-1, and fresh seed yield plant-1. The significance of mean concentration of the two key FA of pod exudates of RIL classified under high, medium and low pod fragrance groups based on organoleptic means by, ‘F’ test indicated good correspondence between objective and organoleptic means and reliability of screening RIL population by organoleptic means.
