Abstract

An investigation was carried out to study the physical characteristics of 28 selected off-season jackfruit germplasm of south western region of Bangladesh. There was significant variation among the germplasms in relation to fruit characteristics. Better performance was showed by germplasm no. 6 in respect of total fruit weight, weight of rind, weight of axis, weight of bulbs, weight of seed, number of seed, length and breadth of fruit. Germplasm no. 9 showed better performance in respect of percentage of edible portion. In respect of length of seed and breadth of seed better performance was showed by germplasm no. 11 and 3 respectively. Germplasm no. 26 showed better performance in relation to length and breadth of bulb.
