Abstract: Borassus flabellifer L. belongs to family Arecaceae and commonly known as Palmyrah palm. It has great economic potential and every part of the palm is useful in one way or the other. The fruits, fruit sap, young tuberous seedlings of palmyrah palm are used as food and leaves, trunk, roots are used for making different non edible products. It is easily grown without much care and can be spotted growing in wild, in agricultural fields and sporadically even on wastelands as stray plantation. Few published data is available on the fruit characteristics of Palmyrah palm. The result of this research may be used to develop an index for the breeding programmes in future.
