A study was conducted in Haor area of Ajmiriganj upazila of Habigonj district. There are five unions in Ajmiriganj upazila. The 45 homesteads were surveyed to understand their knowledge regarding homestead fruit cultivation and also identify the present fruit production system. A well structured interview schedule was developed based on objectives of the study. The majority (42.22%) of the fruit growers belongs to the low knowledge category, while only (20.00%) in high knowledge. Level of education, annual income and size of homestead fruit trees area showed significant positive relationship with knowledge of homestead fruit management, whereas age showed significantly negative relationship with knowledge. The findings revealed that the people of Haor areas in Bangladesh have lower knowledge on management of homestead fruit production and practices. Lack of technical knowledge about materials is the 1st category problem in fruit cultivation followed by high rate of interest and adequate loan demand and also inadequacy and high price of inputs, while interference of middle man to get loan, shortage of cold storage is the more manageable problems regarding to increases of homestead fruit production in Haor areas.
