In Kagzi lime the existing variability is less due to the problem of polyembryony which suppresses the zygotic seedlings. However, to some extent variation is seen in the seedling progeny with respect to morphological, physico–chemical parameters and also in productivity. In any crop, the improvement by selection method involves identification of prosperous types from a genetic stock or population. This can be from homogeneous population of heterozygous individuals in vegetatively propagated crops or from a population resulting from hybridization. Thus variability in the population is a pre-requisite for crop improvement and is considered as a boon to a plant breeder. As variability makes pre - requisite for selection criteria, it is the most quickest and effective method of breeding, particularly in perennial crops. Hence, the present research was carried through survey of forty orchards from Indi and Sindagi taluks of Vijayapura district during the fruiting season of 2015-16. The fruits were used for studying the physico-chemical characters and variety cultivated in the study area was Kagzi lime. The observations on various parameters were recorded in Hasth bahar seasons. Among the 40 selections, KLS-15 (63.75 kg) and KLS-13 (52.67 kg) had maximum yield, whereas minimum number of seeds obtained in KLS-20 (8.50). KLS-31 contained maximum juice (55.40 %), which is useful for juice extraction. For overall acceptability, KLS-15 has shown good results. It should be further multiplied and popularized for the benefit of the farming communities.
