The results of the study indicated that the application of boron 0.9% resulted in maximum fruit weight (22.17 g), fruit size (4.31 x 3.71 cm), pulp weight (17.22 g) and fruit yield per tree (116.74 kg). Minimum stone weight (3.03g) was recorded in the treatment of boron 0.3% while maximum stone weight (3.71 g) was observed in the plants under control.
