Abstract: Acid lime being a tropical fruit crop, it’s flushing and flowering depends on the variation of climatic factors. Kuliana lime is an elite species of Odisha. An experiment was conducted on the reproductive behaviour of 4 year old air layered Kuliana lime in three seasons (Rainy season, winter season and spring season) at Horticultural Research Station, Department of Fruit Science and Horticulture Technology, O.U.A.T., Bhubaneswar during 2016-17. The data clearly revealed that the spring season was superior with respect to reproductive shoot (90.41%), axillary bud (93.15%), hermaphrodite flower (18.45%) and pollen viability (77.42%), which indicates the potential scope for improving the cultivar by adopting breeding technologies as well cultural aspect while taking the bahar that favour the spring season flowering.
