Tomato is one of the most widely grown vegetable crops throughout India with wide range of genetic diversity, which provides a tremendous scope for genetic improvement of economic traits. An improvement in yield and quality in self pollinated crop like tomato is normally achieved by selecting the genotypes with desirable character combinations exiting in nature or by hybridization. Hence, the information in a collection of some indigenous genotypes of tomato in order to formulate a sound breeding plan for it’s improvement has been reviewed here.

Key words: Tomato, Genetic diversity, Variability, Heritability, Genetic advance, Correlation and Path Coefficient
