Brinjal is an important vegetable that directly consumed as cooked form. Fifteen brinjal genotypes werernsown under randomized complete block design with three replications to determine the genetic variabilityrnexisted for six yield contributed traits. Environmental error seemed to be low as minor differencesrnobserved genotypic and phenotypic variance. Most of the traits showed significant correlation with thernfruit yield. Cluster analysis grouped genotypes in three clusters; selection from the genotypes belong torncluster 1 showed high genetic diversity for leaf length, leaf width and fruit diameter. PC3 showedrnmaximum diversity for fruit yield. In future, breeding for high fruit yield, genotype VRIB-1-2013 couldrnbe of better choice.
