The total ash and calcium content of common fruits grown seasonally in latur district was determined by dry ash and EDTA titration method. The results of analysis of fruit Vitits Vinifera (Grapes) show 0.297 % ash and 18.25 mg / 100g of calcium. The analysis data of Syzgium camini (Jambul)show 0.488% ash and 14.99 mg / 100g of calcium. The ash content of both frait vitis Vinifera chrapes and syzgium camini (Jambul) are found to be same as that of literature values. The calcium content of Vitis Vinifera (Grapes) is found to be slightly lower and that of Syzgium Camini (Jambul) is found to be nearly same as compared to that of literature values.
