Aquilaria malaccensis Lam. (Agarwood) is one of the important aromatic oil yielding tree species naturally found in the Indo-malaesian region. In recent years, the species is being cultivated on plantation scale and it is important to understand the variation in the fruits and seed characters to support genetic improvement in the species. A study was conducted to assess the variability in the regional populations and trees within the population with respect to fruit and seed traits. The existence of variation in fruit and seed characters of different populations and trees in the population was evident. Broad sense heritability values of different fruit and seed traits were determined and the values were relatively higher. Phenotypic and genetic correlations between fruit and seed traits were also estimated and most of the fruit traits were having positive correlation with important seed traits such as seed weight, seed length and seed width.

Keywords: Aquilaria malaccensis, Broad sense heritability, Phenotypic, Genotypic correlations
