Abstract: Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) is regarded as one of the main commercial vegetable and spice crops at the global level. The present study on evaluation of chilli with fifteen chilli genotypes was carried out at Vegetable Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Allahabad School of Agriculture Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture, Technology and Sciences, Allahabad during 2014-2015. The mean of the different traits for 15 genotypes of chilli with three replications treatment were tried in Randomized Block Design. On the basis of fifteen genotypes studied, for different characters genotype 12CHIV AR-1 was found superior in terms of yield related characters, like numbers of branches 150 DAT, days to first anthesis, numbers of fruits plant- 1, average fruit weight, ascorbic acid, capsaicin content, fruit diameter, days to 50% flowering, days to first harvest. Result also showed that 12CHIV AR-1 performed the best than in relation to most of the characters like plant height, number of branches plant-1, plant spread, days to flower first anthesis, days to 50% flowering, day to first harvest.
