Abstract: Evaluation of 35 local genotypes of jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam.) under coffee ecosystem of pulney hills was conducted to assess the correlation of different fruit components viz., fruit length, fruit diameter, fruit weight, fruit rind weight, total weight of flakes per fruit and number of fruits per tree per year recorded highly significant and positive correlation with yield per tree per year (0.581, 0.455, 0.781, 0.715 and 0.611 respectively). Path coefficient analysis revealed adequate genetic background for direct and indirect effect of various characters on yield per tree. Hence, at the time of selection of jackfruit genotypes, one has to put emphasis on the yield and quality parameters.
