Twenty-one bitter gourd genotypes collected from different seed company and were evaluated under Randomized Block Design with three replications at Vegetable Research Farm, Bihar Agricultural University, Sabour during February month of 2016-17. An experiment was conducted to evaluate the morphological characters, fruit yield and biochemical traits of different bitter gourd genotypes. The pistillate flowers produced earlier than staminate flowers in the proximal node in some genotypes. The results revealed that small fruited genotype had larger number of fruits whereas larger size fruits had highest average weight. All the genotype shown wide range of scale for morphological and biochemical traits based on Duncan multiple range test. The biochemical traits shown considerable variation among the genotype. Phenotypic correlation matrix was higher than genotypic correlation matrix for all the traits. The variations in morphological, quantitative and biochemical traits attributes leads to development of high yielding variety for qualitative and quantitative traits through breeding techniques.
