Abstract: The present experiment was carried out during spring summer season of 2014 at Vegetable Research Center of GBPUAT, Pantnagar (Uttarakhand) to estimate the performance of chilli genotypes for yield and qualitative traits in randomized block design with three replication. Observations were recorded on yield and various qualitative traits viz. number of primary branches, stem diameter, number of petals, days to 50% ripening, periferi of fruit, pericarp thickness, average fruit weight, number of seeds per fruit, weight of seeds per fruit, seed yield per plant, 100 seed weight and total dry fruit yield (q/ha) from five selected plants in each replication. There was found significant variation among all the genotypes for different characters under study. Maximum dry matter content was found in genotype PC 20131, oleoresin content in PC 20115 and Ascorbic acid content in PC 1. In case of fruit yield per plant genotype PC 20132 (89.79 g) produced maximum fruit yield.
