An experiment was conducted with 15 germplasm to study the correlation and direct and indirect effect of different characters on yield and quality of tomato. The experiment was conducted in a randomize block design. The correlation analysis of tomato revealed that yield was positively and significantly correlation with average fruit weight and fruit per plant. The path analysis indicated that average fruit weight followed by fruit per plant had maximum positive per plant had maximum positive direct on yield per plant. Therefore emphasis should be given on average fruit weight, fruit per plant and also fruit length, while selecting a good genotype for enhancing the yield of tomato.

Key words: Genotypic, Phenotypic, Correlation, Path
