Abstract
Studies were conducted in Himachal Pradesh, India, with exotic and indigenous almond cultivars, genotypes and seedling selections. Number of flowers/unit shoot length, fruit set before harvesting, number of fruits/unit shoot length, mean fruit weight and mean kernel weight showed comparatively high genotypic and phenotypic coefficients of variation, heritability and genetic advance, indicating predominance of additive gene action for the control of these characters in the material studied.
