The present study was carried out to find out the effects of the different Germplasms of Jackfruit on its Morphological characters under the Terai Conditions of Uttarakhand. The experiment was conducted in Plot No.6, HRC, Patharchatta at GBPUA and T, Pantnagar, Uttarakhand. In this experiment a screening of 10 Germplasms of Jackfruit widely found around the Terai areas of Uttarakhand was done through a Randomized Block design consisting of 10 treatments and 3 replications. The treatments being the 10 Germplasms labelled from 1 to 10 planted in rows. It was observed in the study that regarding the morphological characters Jackfruit Germplasm-6 and Jackfruit Germplasm-8 were found to be of short stature, with a spreading habit. Further, it can be concluded that there was significant variation in morphological character of various germplasm of Jackfruit. Among the various germplasm; Jackfruit Germplasm-6 and Jackfruit Germplasm-8 were found to be superior as compared to others in dwarfness, spreading and yield.
