The estimations of specific heat, thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of Abelmoschus esculentus were resolved and their variety with moisture content (15-40% w.b.) and bulk density (578.7-750.5 Kg/m 3 ) explored. Thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat expanded with moisture content in the above moisture range. Thermal properties were discovered to be both moisture and bulk density subordinate. Bulk density of Abelmoschus esculentus s took after an illustrative association with moisture content. It was observed that therma l conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of Abelmoschus esculentus specimens were in the scope of 0.989 to 1.564 W/m.k, 11 x 10 -8 to 6 x 10 -8 m 2 /s and 5 to 9 KJ/Kg.K, individual
