Abstract: Forty seven genotypes of kokum selected from farmer’s field near Sirsi of 10 years age were compared based on the colour of the fruits into red and yellow fruit bearing genotypes and were evaluated for growth characters for three years. Among all the growth parameters plant height found maximum in the yellow types and other characters found highest in the red types. The tree height varied from 3.94 to 9.98 m. A maximum tree height, stem diameter at breast height among the red types was recorded in the genotype GI-33(9.60m and 43.28cm, respectively), trunk diameter at the base in GI-01 (89.67cm), number of branches GI-24 (144nos.), North-South spread of 5.73m (GI-13) and East-West spread of 5.95m (GI-01). Among yellow genotypes maximum plant height, stem diameter at breast height and number of branches in the genotype GI-38 (9.98 m, 49.62m and 126nos., respectively), Plant spread at North-South and East-West directions found highest in GI-19 (5.68m and 5.65m, respectively).
