Abstract

Thirty cashew hybrids were assessed for flower characters, flowering behaviour, fruit set, fruit retention and yield. The hybrids, H-817, H-1132 and H-824 were identified as desirable hybrids for flower characters. The hybrids, H- 821 and H- 824 had longest flowering duration and highest flowering intensity, respectively. Considering fruit set and fruit retention, the hybrids H-816 and H-814 were found promising. H- 815, H- 1132 and H- 1139 were identified as high yielding cashew hybrids on the basis of nut yield (kg/tree).
