Abstract:
A study was conducted to determine the nature and magnitude of variation among 30 mango germplasms for different tree growth, flowering and fruiting attributes. The data related to tree type, crown shape, tree growth habit and foliage density are showed variation among all mango germplasm. The germplasm PMSS-9 exhibited longest flowering duration. The secondary/ off-season flowering was absent and terminal position & semi erect inflorescence axis growth habit were observed in all the mango germplasm. The variation was noted with respect to shape of inflorescence and density of flowers in inflorescence. However, the variation was observed among all mongo germplasm with respect to bearing intensity, fruit shape, attractiveness, surface texture of fruit skin and density of lenticles on fruit skin. A considerable variation in fruit skin thickness and pulp content were observed in the different germplasm of mango. A better understanding of the relationship between the genotypic and phenotypic traits needs to be developed by further examination of the genetic parameters and divergence in the germplasm.
