A set of 44 genotypes including 8 females, 4 males and their 32 single hybrids were sown during rabi - 2011 at Vegetable Research Scheme, Regional Horticulture Research Station, NAU, Navsari to study the magnitude of heterosis, using line x testers analysis for thirteen characters. Significant differences were observed among parents and hybrids indicating considerable genetic variation among these genotypes. Significant standard heterosis and high per se performance with regard to green pod yield per plant were recorded by the crosses viz., GNI-14 x Gujarat Papdi, GNI-14 x Manchhi Papdi, GNI-9 x Katargam, GNI-14 x NPS-1, GNI-9 x NPS-1, GNI-9 x Gujarat Papdi, GNI-9 x Manchhi Papdi, GNI-45 x Katargam, GNI-14 x Katargam and GNI-45 x Gujarat Papdi.

Key words: Heterosis and Indian bean.
