    ABSTRACT: Pollen germination of Carica papaya L., of the family Caricaceae was examined upto 48 weeks in refrigerator (+4oC), freezer (-20oC, -30oC) and freeze drier (-60oC). Pollen stored at low temperature showed better germination percentage as compared to pollen stored at +4oC and fresh. Freeze dried pollen (-60oC) showed the highest germination percentage. Whereas lowering the storage temperature and moisture contents tends to increase the viability.
