The investigation was carried out at Vegetable Research Station, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh (Gujarat) during late kharif/rabi 2018-19 in Randomized Block Design with three replications. The experimental material comprised of thirty five genotypes and five check varieties. The analysis of variance revealed that mean sum of square due to genotype was highly significant for all fourteen characters studied. High phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variation, high heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean were observed for fruit borer infestation, number of fruits per plant, fruit weight, fruit length, number of branches per plant, plant height and total fruit yield per plant.
