The experiment was conducted in Division of Agroforestry, Sher-e-kashmir University of Agricultural sciences and Technology of Jammu, Chatha, during the year 2017. Mature fruits were collected from randomly selected four trees and were graded into small (S), medium (M) and large size (L) on the basis of diameter. The fruit subjected to four pre-sowing treatments were sown in polythene bags with potting mixture consisting of soil, sand vermicompost and FYM in (1:1:1:1) ratio. The experiment was laid out in nursery conditions in Factorial CRD with four replications to determine most suitable fruit size and pre-sowing treatment for quality-planting stock and to enhance the germination of the species for the artificial regeneration. In order from the study that large size fruits (L) exhibited all other grades in all seedling growth parameters. The fruits treated with conc.H2SO4 soaking for 10 minutes (T3) and large fruit size (L) indicated significantly maximum germination percentage.
