Jamun (Syzygium cumini Skeels.) is a versatile fruit tree of India. A survey was carried out in Amritsar, Gurdaspur and Pathankot Districts to identify the elite genotypes, in which 25 seedlings of jamun were evaluated for their vegetative and fruit qualities during 2015-2016 respectively. The study revealed that there was a wide variation among the genotypes. Data revealed that the maximum tree height (24.38m) and tree spread (17.67 m). was measured in GD-19 genotype. The maximum leaf length (22.0 cm) and leaf breadth (10.10 cm) was recorded in the genotypes GD-3 and GD-6. The genotype GD-13 recorded highest (78.28%) pulp per cent. Maximum seed weight( 4.08 g) was in the genotype GQ-32 while Genotype GD-10 ranked first with regard to yield (182.40 kg/tree).
