The morphological characterization of mango genotypes plays a significant role to understand their diversity, identifying distinct traits, and providing valuable insights into their classification and breeding. Hence, the experiment was conducted on 25 primary mango genotypes at Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour, Bihar during the years 2020–2021. The results showed that the genotypes G-06 and G-42 had the earliest bud break (4th February). While genotype G-23 had the maximum panicle length (36.75 cm). The genotype G-28 had the maximum canopy volume of 397.42 m3 with the maximum plant spread in both directions (7.35m in north-south and 7.35 m in east-west direction). Based on the above findings, it can be concluded that genotypes G-11, G-12, G-30, G-23, G-28, and G-29 performed better in respect of floral attributes and more canopy volume, which are important factors for maximization of yield.
