Pomological characteristics of 10 mango varieties were studied during February-June, 2023. Distinct variation were found among the studied varieties. Significant variation were observed in term of fruit length, fruit width, fruit weight, seed length, seed width, seed weight, seed thickness, epidermal thickness ranging from 7.27 cm to 14.02 cm, 4.97 cm to 7.64 cm, 121 gm to 346 gm, 6.03 cm to 12.23 cm, 2.8 cm to 4.23 cm, 22.7 gm to 37.9 gm, 1.56 cm to 2.16 cm and 0.113 cm to 0.333 cm respectively. Among the studied varieties, Variety Nam Dok Mai has the longest fruit (14.02 cm) and longest seed (12.23 cm). Mallika has largest fruit width (7.64 cm) and largest seed width (4.23 cm). Maximum fruit weight (346 gm) was found in Kalkatiya and Mallika. Maximum seed weight (41 gm) was found in Baramasi. Maximum seed thickness (2.16 cm) was recorded in variety Kalkatiya whereas Bombay has maximum epidermal thickness (0.333 cm).
