Abstract: The present research work on evaluation of some tomato germplasms for horticultural traits under Lucknow conditions was carried out at the Horticulture Research Farm of Department of Applied Plant Science, Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar University, Vidya Vihar, Rae Bareli Road, Lucknow (U.P.), India, during Rabi season of 2015-16. The research material comprised of sixteen diverse genotypes of tomato collected from different sources. All the genotypes were grown in Randomized Block Design with three replications in 2.4x 1.0 m2 plant keeping 60 cm distance between the row and distance of plant to plant was maintained 45 cm. They were evaluated for growth and yield attribute for the all the traits. On the basis of overall findings of the present research study it was concluded that there is wide range of variation in tomato strain for all the characters studied. The strain PT-11 is highly significant for Days to marketable picking, Number of flower per cluster, Number of fruit per cluster, Number of fruit per plant, Fruit weight per cluster and for Fruit weight and the biochemical traits TSS and ascorbic acid found highest PH-2 strain of tomato except acidity (Pusa Rohini).
