Physio-morphological characteristics of 30 local accessions of pummelo were studied at the existing
plantation of the Regional Agricultural Research Station (RARS), Ishurdi, Pabna during the period
from October 2000 to October 2001. Among the 30 local pummelo accessions, accession number
6, 8, 10, 15, 17 and 22 were found better in respect of fruit characteristics compared to the rest of
the accessions. The plants of accession number 8 bore the maximum number of fruits (52.66) and
plants of accession number 5 bore the minimum number of fruits (13.00). The fruit of accession
number 27 was the heaviest (2160 g) whereas accession number 7 produced the smallest fruits
(718.33 g). Fruits of accession number 6 contained the highest TSS (9.66%). The edible qualities
of accession number 6, 8, 15, 17, 21 and 22 were found better compared to others. All most all the
characteristics viz. fruits plant‾1, fruit weight, fruit diameter. rind thickness, number of segments
fruit‾1. TSS percentage with eating quality of fruit were preferable in accession number 22.
