An investigation was undertaken at Horticultural Research Station, Mahanandi, Kurnool Dt. Andhra Pradesh during 2008-2009 to study the performance of five tomato varieties under polyhouse condition. The study consisted of five tomato varieties laid out in Randomized Block Design with four replications. Results revealed that significantly longer plant (116.50 cm), stem diameter (6.60 cm), number of primary (4.51), secondary (13.51), tertiary (11.25) branches, spread of the plant along the row (101.50 cm), across the row (92.24 cm) were recorded maximum in skakthiman (V2). Early days to flowering (35.83), minimum duration to 50 per cent flowering (58.67 days) and higher flower count per plant (63.75), maximum weight of the fruit (74.85 g), longer length of the fruit (13.10 cm), diameter of the fruit (18.21 cm) and fruit yield (47.59  t/ha) were recorded in cultivar shakthiman (V2).

Key words: Growth, Flowering, Tomato varieties, Yield.
