The present investigation entitled “Assesment of varities of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum ) for growth, yield & quality under cover & open field condition” was carried out in the naturally ventilated arched saw teeth type polyhouse  and in open field in main campus of Faculty of Horticulture, Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya during the year 2015-16. The objective of the experiments were to study fruit yield and quality parameters of different indeterminate variety of tomato under New Alluvial zone of West Bengal in open field and cover condition.
The experiment consisted of eleven tomato varieties namely VL-642,  Kundan, Karan, Karina, Kohinoor, DEB 2913, PAN 1286, Amlika, DEB 2912, Chiranjeev, Namdhari and two situation like protected condition and open field condition. The experiment was laid out in  Randomized Block Design with three replications. Statistically significant variation found in different variety for most of the characters. Only number of primary branches was non-significant for the varieties in both poly house and open field situation. For growth parameter variety grown in poly house were show better result than variety grown in open field condition. Among different variety maximum height recorded in variety PAN 1286 (191.73) followed by variety Kundan (185.96 cm)  grown in poly house condition while in open field condition highest plant height recorded in Karan (139.66 cm) followed by PAN 1286 (134.00 cm). The variety Amlika recorded highest inter-nodal length  in both poly house condition (17.03 cm) and open filed condition (15.87 cm).
While variety Kohinoor recorded early flowering (26.33 days) as well as early fruit set (39.00days) under poly house condition. Similarly in open field condition also Kohinoor (23.00 days) was early flowering as well as early fruit set (35.00 days). Variety, VL-642  recorded maximum number of flowers per cluster both in poly house(6.60)  and open field(6.40) condition. While Kundan (13.00) recorded maximum number of clusters per plant followed by VL-642 (12.33) in polyhouse however, Karan produce maximum number of clusters per plant (11.33) followed by VL-642 and PAN 1286 (11.00) in open field condition.
