Abstract:

The flowering behavior of wax apple in new alluvial zone of West Bengal with five germplasm was carried out at Horticulture Research Station, Mondouri, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya in the year 2015-16 with an objective to provide a wealth of usable information to improve wax apple breeding programme. A wide range of variation was noted in respect of different parameters of flowering behavior.  Flower bud emerged from 3rd week of October to last week of April with a period of bud development of 15.25 to 31.75 days among different germplasm of wax apple. The germplasms of wax apple flowered from 2nd week of November to 1st week of June with two (Type 1 and Type 2) or three (Type 3, Type 4 and Type 5) flowering seasons. The flowering duration was wide during 2nd flowering season (16.25-51.00 days) as compared to 1st (16.45-22.00 days) and 3rd flowering season (20.50-30.25 days). The duration of 2nd flowering season was higher in Type 3 (43.25 days), Type 4 (30.75 days) and Type 5 (51.00 days). It is concluded that this knowledge of reproductive characters will be useful for efficient and purposeful breeding programme as well as for using these germplasm as desirable parent.
