Abstract: Given a positive integer $ n$ and a compact connected Riemann surface $ X$, we prove that the symmetric product $ S^n(X)$ admits a Kähler form of nonnegative holomorphic bisectional curvature if and only if $ \text {genus}(X)\, \leq \, 1$. If $ n$ is greater than or equal to the gonality of $ X$, we prove that $ S^n(X)$ does not admit any Kähler form of nonpositive holomorphic sectional curvature. In particular, if $ X$ is hyperelliptic, then $ S^n(X)$ admits a Kähler form of nonpositive holomorphic sectional curvature if and only if $ n\,=\,1\, \leq \,$$ \text {genus}(X)$.
