Despite being originated in the Peru Equador region, it is one of the most important, popular and widely grown vegetable in India having wide range of variability for various plant traits. For any improvement in tomato a detailed knowledge on genetic variability, heritability, genetic advance, correlation, path coefficient and genetic diversity of various quantitative and qualitative characters and their effect towards yield is essential to achieve highest production and productivity. Studies in this aspect can not to be theorized for every genetic materials and climatic condition. Hence, the information below provides a sound breeding plan for the improvement of tomato.
