The Experiment was conducted at the Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, (U.P.) during 2016. The experiment was arranged in randomized block design with 3 replications. The experiment was carried out to assess floral biology, fruit set and fruit drop of jamun genotypes. The study revealed that there was a wide variation among the accessions. Earliest flowering (first week of March) was observed in ‘selection 2’. The maximum mean of anthesis and dehiscence varied from 8.00 to 9.00 A.M and 8.30 to 9.30 A.M, respectively. The highest (81.50) pollen viability was recorded in selection 9. The greatest stigma receptivity was observed one day after anthesis and maximum receptivity of stigma was found in ‘selection 2’. The genotype belonging to ‘selection 5’ had maximum fruit drop.
