Abstract:

Evaluation of 24 local genotypes from six different agroclimatic zones of Assam was conducted during 2016-2018. Wide variability was observed among the selected jackfruit accessions for morphological characters. Variability in crown shapes like irregular, elliptical, oblong and spherical were observed. Wide variations in leaf blade shape i.e. elliptic, obovate, oblong, broadly elliptic and narrowly elliptic were recorded in the selected jackfruits. Different fruit shapes like ellipsoid, spheroid, oblong, clavate, oblong and irregular were recorded in the selected accessions. Flake texture and flake flesh colour also showed wide variation. In seeds, different seed shapes such as ellipsoid, irregular, reniform, spheroid and oblong were recorded.
