Abstract: A field experiment was conducted to study the performance of different banana genotypes with respect to crop duration and shelf life under northern dry zone of Karnataka. Twenty three genotypes viz., Karibale, Kayipallebale, Rajapuri, Red banana, Rasabale, Elakkibale, Kanayibanasi, Mitli, Bargibale, Balbisiana, Pisanglilin, FHIA-3, Lalchakrakeli, Basrai Dwarf, Monthon, Robusta, Kadali, YangaviKM-5, Sakkarebale, Karpuravalli, Poovan, Pisangawak and Hanuman were evaluated. The genotype Mitli taken minimum days for flowering (211 days), thus short crop duration (304.06 days), and also recorded the shortest green life (5.67 days), shortest yellow life (3.33 days) and thus the shortest shelf life (9.00 days). The maximum days (377.76) taken to flowering was observed in Karpuravalli. Elakkibale recorded the minimum days from flowering to harvesting (71.33 days) and maximum in (151.33days) Kadali. The maximum (524.18 days) plant duration, longest green life (15.66 days) and longest shelf life (22.33 days) was observed in Balbisiana. The longest yellow life (6.67days) was observed in the genotype Poovan. Among the genotypes studied with respect to crop duration Mitli genotype performed better and Balbisiana showed maximum shelf life
