Abstract

The main aim of study was to characterize 20 genotypes of Psidium spp., consisting of 16 cultivated varieties and 4 wild spp. at morphological level. Observations were recorded for different leaf characters viz., length of leaf blade, width of leaf blade, petiole length, number of veins, surface area of leaf, shape of leaf, shape of leaf apex and base, colour of upper and lower leaf surface, colour of leaves during winters, texture of leaf, pubescence and leaf lamina thickness which revealed that significant variations were present with reference to various morphological characteristics among the different genotypes. Psidium chinensis was observed to be most diverse morphologically. Considering shape of leaf, shape of leaf apex and base and leaf colour during winters, these leaf morphological characters were quite informative and useful in characterizing these genotypes, as some genotypes could easily be identified using a combination of these characters.
