The present investigation was conducted in randomized block design with 38 genotypes (including three checks) of tomato in three replications for thirteen traits. The objectives were to assess the genetic variability for fruit yield and yield contributing characters. Analysis of variance showed that the mean squares due to genotypes were significant for all the thirteen characters. The estimates of PCV were higher than GCV for all the traits. The magnitude of GCV and PCV was found highest in case of unmarketable fruit yield per plant followed by marketable fruit yield per plant, pericarp thickness, total fruit yield per plant, average fruit weight, locules per fruit and numbers of fruits per plant.
