Abstract: The present investigation Character association studies for fruit traits and yield in Tamarind (Tamarindus indica L) was carried out at AICRP for Dryland Agriculture and Department of Horticulture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola, on twenty six tamarind genotypes with the objective to study the correlation between the different fruit traits and yield of tamarind genotypes. Correlation studies of different fruit and yield characters in tamarind genotypes revealed that the pod weight highly significant and positively correlated with pulp weight (r=0.942), seed weight (r=0.866), shell weight (r=0.913), rag weight (r=0.835) and seed number (r=0.651). However, Yield plant-1 possessed positive correlation with pod width (r = 0.215), pod weight (r = 0.290), pulp weight (r = 0.323), seed weight (r = 0.254), shell weight (r = 0.139) and rag weight (r = 0.128).Whereas, yield plant-1 had highly significant association with pod length (r = 0.497) and seed number (r = 0.555). The association of different fruit parameters and yield helps to understand the relationship between seedling originated tamarind genotypes.
