Monitoring on the panicle initiation, flowering, fruiting and seedling characteristics of Corypha taliera has been carried out. Biochemical composition of fresh and dry flowers together with the pericarp of the fruits have been analysed. Fresh flowers, fruits, seeds, and pericarp and testa weighed 13.75 mg/flower, 19.46 g/fruit, 6.47 g/seed, 12.89 g/pericarp and testa, respectively. The length of fruits and seeds were c 3.34 cm and c 2.33 cm, respectively while the breadth of the same were 3.14… Expand
