The survey work was under taken to study the variability in kagzi lime of Latur district during 2010-2011. The strain LTR5 recorded the maximum height of plant (4.22 m), which was on par with LTR8 (4.20 m) and LTR13 (4.18 m). There was a significant variation in tree volume ranged from 8.87 m3 to 57.82 m.3 The strain LTR19 was  recorded the maximum tree volume (57.82 m3). Maximum number of fruits per tree (2390.00) was recorded in strain LTR5. Maximum fruit weight was recorded in LTR11 (65.33 g), which was on par with strain LTR2 (64.00 g).The fruit volume was recorded maximum in LTR11 (65.00 ml), which was on par with strain LTR2 (64.00 ml). The length of fruit was maximum in LTR11 (4.95 cm), which was on par with LTR8 (4.92 cm), whereas, the maximum breadth of fruit was recorded in strain LTR8 (4.70cm). The highest shape index of fruit was recorded in LTR11 (1.09), which was at par with LTR3 (1.07). Many strains were yellow in colour, oval shaped and smooth in texture.
