A Study on quantitative characteristics of fruits of guava germplasm in both on and off seasons was carried out at the germplasm center, Fruit-Tree Improvement Project (FTIP) of the Department of Horticulture, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh, during June, 2000 to April, 2001. Different quantitative characters were found statistically significant. In respect of different characters such as fruit size, fruit weight, thickness, weight of mesocarp and endocarp, number of seeds per fruit, percent edible portion. The guava showed better performance in both on and off seasons but fruits of off- seasons were better than that of on seasons. In respect of fruit weight, size, flesh weight, seed per fruit and percent edible portion, the germplasm PG-028, PG-027 and PG-005 were superior among all the germplasm in both the seasons.
