A study was conducted on GI tagged Tezpur litchi (Litchi chinesis Sonn.) varieties at litchi garden, Porua, Tezpur and on a litchi variety at Experimental Farm, Department of Horticulture, Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat during 2016-2018 to have a morphological studies of Tezpur litchi. A total of seven varieties i.e., Bombay, Shahi, Piyaji, China, Bilati and Elaichi from Tezpur and Shahi from Jorhat district with four replications were laid out in a Completely Randomized Design (CRD). The results revealed significant effect on canopy spread with maximum value in cultivar Tezpur Shahi. Cultivar Bombay showed early flowering with lowest duration from flowering to harvesting, whereas, reverse is the case in cultivar Bilati. The highest fruit weight, fruit circumference, fruit volume, aril weight, aril thickness and specific gravity were recorded in the cultivar Bilati. Piyaji recorded the highest seed weight, length and diameter. The cultivar China displayed significantly highest yield per hectare (48.47t/ha), whilst, the lowest yield (13.92t/ha) was recorded in JorhatShahi. The cultivar Bilati displayed least fruit cracking with highest skin strength which is partly due to high fruit skin calcium and high boron.
