Abstract
The present studies regarding flowering and fruiting behaviour and physico-chemical quality of persimmon were under taken during 2002. Culitvar ‘Hachiya’ starts early flowering, full bloom, end of bloom with longest flowering duration 12.33 days and highest fruit set per cent (80.6%), while cultivar ‘Round’ flowering duration and fruit set per cent 8.5 days and 75% respectively. Maximum fruit drop (38.75%) recorded in ‘Hachiya’ and lowest 33.33% in Round. Significantly highest fruit weight, fruit length and yield recorded ‘Hachiya’, however, TSS, acidity, total sugar and highest number of seed per fruit was recorded in ‘Round’.
