Eighteen brinjal genotypes/varieties were evaluated at Horticultural Research cum Instructional Farm, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (C.G.) during the rabi season of 2015-2016 for nineteen characters. The experiment was arranged in Randomized Complete Block Design with 3 replications. 2013/BRLVAR-5 took the shortest period of days to 50% flowering. 2013/BRLVAR-6 recorded significantly higher number of fruits (2.80) followed by 2013/BRLVAR-1 (2.16), 2014/BRLVAR-3 (1.80) and 2014/BRLVAR-1 (1.73). Fruit length was maximum in Kashi Taru (21.23 cm) followed by 2013/BRLVAR-4 (18.02 cm) which were significantly superior to other genotypes. 2014/BRLVAR-1 was found superior over rest of other genotypes with respect to most of desirable characters like plant height (91.31 cm), plant spread (100.06 cm), fruit yield per plant (2.77 kg), marketable fruit yield (971.50 q/ha), while minimum values for most of the parameters were observed in KS-224 and 2014/BRRVAR-2.
