Abstract: The study was carried out at Department of Plantation, Spices, Medicinal and Aromatic crops, College of Horticulture, UHS campus, GKVK, Bengaluru, during November 2016 to February 2017. Sixteen coriander varieties were collected from different institutes and were evaluated using RCBD with three replications. From the study on mean performance of genotypes, based on growth, yield and quality attributes, the maximum plant height (99.45 cm), and plant spread (1470.40 cm2) were recorded in RCr-446 followed by RCr-475. Number of primary branches per plant (13.65), number of umbels per plant (31.70), number of umbellets per umbel (8.25), dry weight (9.64 g), test weight (19.50 g), seed yield per plant (7.36 g) and seed yield per hectare (14.35 q) was recorded in (CO(CR)-4) followed by ACr-1 and RCr-446. The maximum essential oil content was recorded in CO(Cr)-4 (0.66 %), CO-3 (0.60 %) and RCr-446 (0.53%). While, maximum linalool content was observed in RCr-728 (92.33%) and RCr-480 (89.13 %).
