An experiment was conducted to study the storage and viability of karonda seeds (Carrisa carandas L.). Studies revealed that the seeds possessed short viability due to recalcitrant nature. This could overcome by finding a suitable storage temperature and container treatment for storage of karonda seeds. This study showed significant differences among the storage conditions and container treatments. Seeds treated with Trichoderma harzianum kept in poly bag and stored in refrigerated condition resulted maximum germination 90.00, 80.00, 73.33, 56.66, 50.00 and 43.33 per cent at 15, 30, 45, 60, 75 and 90 days after extraction, respectively. Seed storage under ambient condition is not recommended as seeds losses its viability early. The use of bio- control agents and different leaf powder are recommended to extend seed viability period and germination in karonda seeds.
