One hundred and twenty nine palmyrah genotypes were collected from various parts of India and Fruit characterization wasdone.. Variability parameters indicated that high variability exist for fruit weight (g) and weight of shreds (g). Moderatevariability was observed for weight of seed. Low variability was observed for fruit length (cm), fruit diameter (cm), length ofseed (cm), circumference of seed and weight of flesh (g). Hence all the characters except seed weight are good for furtherimprovement through selection. The correlation studies for eight fruit characters indicated that all traits namely fruit weight (g),fruit length (cm), fruit diameter (cm), weight of seed (g), length of seed (cm), circumference of seed, weight of flesh (g) andweight of shreds (g) had significant and positive correlation. Hence simultaneous selection is possible for all these traits inPalmyrah.
