Khasi Mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco.) is one of the most widely cultivated and important commercial fruit crop of North East India. A survey was conducted in Mandarin orchards from three district of Manipur viz., Tamenglong, Bishnupur and Noney during 2018 to study the present status of Khasi Mandarin in Manipur with growth, yield and quality parameters. The Mandarin fruits were evaluated morphologically and biochemically for different parameters. It was observed that all the three district of Manipur was found to have Khasi Mandarin in the orchards but it was gradually declined. Incidence of various diseases, lower nutrient concentration and lack of disease free quality planting materials are the bottlenecks accounting for overall low average productivity of 8.83 t/ha. Though at present Manipur have limited area under Khasi mandarin, but their quality was found superior. All the three districts recorded superior quality fruits in respect of juice content (%), acidity (%), TSS (ºBrix), TSS: Acidity and Ascorbic acid (mg/100 ml) content. Among the growth, yield and yield attributing parameters, the three districts showed significant difference for all the characters studied.
