Abstract:
The present investigation was conducted at Department of vegetable crops, TNAU, Coimbatore. The experimental material comprised of 50 local brinjal genotypes (land races) along with two checks of brinjal varieties and the experiment was laid out in randomized block design with two replications. Analysis of variance revealed that considerable variability among the genotypes for all the eighteen characters. High phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variation was recorded for fruit girth (24.44 and 24.40 per cent). High level of heritability with moderate genetic advance as percentage mean was recorded by protein content (93.44 and 11.41 per cent).
