Abstract:

Jamun (Syzygium cumini Skeels.) is an important minor indigenous fruit, belongs to the family Myrtaceae. It is native to India and Myanmar; however, it has naturalized throughout the South East Asia and Pacific regions. Jamun is also an important source of nutraceuticals especially its use in treating diabetes in traditional medicine. The seeds of Jamun are polyembryonic and this trait could be effectively utilized in the nursery as it can produce true to type seedlings. Polyembryony character is regulated by several factors including environmental conditions. Here we report variation in the degree of polyembryony among the jamun accessions collected from different states. The collections of Jharkhand were found to produce higher number of single seedlings; whereas collections from Dharwad region are highly polyembryonic producing highest numbers of multiple seedlings. There were one to seven seedlings per seed.
