An investigation was carried out to study the Floral biology of five different minor fruit species of Assam viz., ‘Mirika-tenga’ (Parameria polyneura Hk.f.), ‘Bogi jamuk’ (Syzygium jambos (L.) Alston), ‘Ou-tenga’ (Dillenia indica L.), ‘Amora’ (Spondias mangifera) and ‘Poniol’ (Flacourtia jangomas (Lour.) Raeus.) belonging to different families. In Parameria polyneura flowering started from 21th December to 16th January with a duration of 27 days; in Syzygium jambos from 20th December to 12th April with a duration of 115 days; in Dillenia indica from 21st June to 11th July with a duration of 21 days; in Spondias mangifera from 15th march to 6th April with a duration of 23 days and in Flacourtia jangomas from 30th march to 16th April with a duration of 18 days. Among the five fruits Dillenia indica had the largest sepal and petal whereas Spondias mangifera had the smallest petal and Flacourtia jangamos had the smallest sepal. In Parameria polyneura number of sepals was recorded 4 and was devoid of petals, in Syzygium jambos 4 sepals and 4 petals, in Dillenia indica 5 sepals and 5petals,in Spondias mangifera 5 sepals and 5 petals and Flacourtia jangomas flower was devoid of petals and consisted of 5-6 sepals.
