Sapota fruit development followed a characteristic double sigmoid pattern growth which could be divided into three growths stages such as i) Period of rapid growth (1-6 months), ii) Lag phase or slow growth phase (6-7 months) iii) Accelerated growth phase (7-9 months). Results showed that cv. PKM-3 was recorded maximum fruit length (75.40 mm) whereas minimum fruit length was recorded in cv. Cricket Ball (57.41 mm). The minimum width was recorded in cv. Guthi (49.78 mm).

Key words: Accelerated growth, Double Sigmoid, Fruit development, Lag phase, Rapid growth
