In the present study, morphological traits of growth, fruits and quality were observed in different genotypes of Sea buckthorn growing naturally in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, India. The mean performance of plant resources was studied and phenotypic characters were evaluated. Mean values for almost all the characters were found higher in genotype CH-41. Different genotypes showed varied morphology from shrub to tree with plant height ranging from 3m to 6m. The canopy width ranged from 2m to 5m. The fruit colour light yellow and yellow were prominent while orange was also observed in few genotypes. Fruits ripened between September and November with profuse to sparse fruit bearing. Among the growth parameters, leaf length ranged from 4mto 8m indicating high variability. Ten genotypes also differed in fruit weight from 2.60 to 4.38 g and similar trend was also observed in fruit length. Biochemical characters were largely dependent on growth characters and also showed remarkable variation in juice percentage and TSS level. This wide range of variation among different genotypes opens the door for breeders to utilize it for improvement of Sea buckthorn.
