The goal of this research was to evaluate citron (Citrus medica) accessions for their vegetative and yield contributing characters for increasing productivity through superior accessions maintained at Citrus Research Station, Bangladesh Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Jaintapur, Sylhet, Bangladesh. The experimental plot had sandy loam textured soil. Nine citron germplasm collection from farmer’s field of different locations of Sylhet region of Bangladesh and were used as the planting material. Plants were planted in randomized complete block design with three replications and evaluated in 2015 on the basis of their growth, yield attributes and fruit characters viz., plant height, plant volume, time of flowering, duration from flower to fruit maturity (Days), number of fruits/plant, Individual fruit weight (g), yield/plant (kg), fruit yield (t/ha), yield efficiency (kg/m³), fruit length (cm), fruit diameter (cm), Peel thickness (mm), Peel weight (g), Albedo TSS (%), number segments/fruit, seed weight/fruit (g), edible portion (%) along with some qualitative traits like fruit surface texture, fruit axis, fruit shape, fruit apex, fruit base, flavedo color, albedo color, fruit aroma. The results showed that the growth parameters differed significantly among the tested accessions. Highest number (41.7) of fruits per plant, largest fruits (8312g), highest yield/plant (34.85 kg) and highest yield/ha (21.78 t) were recorded in CM Jai-062. Beside this CM Jai -061, CM Jai -063 and CM Jai -064 also had higher yield capability.
