The present investigation was conducted to find out the association among 25 different qualitative and quantitative characters in 95 chilli genotypes during the year 2007-08. The correlation study indicated that the fruit yield / plant was positively and significantly correlated with the number of fruits/ plant, weight of fruits / plant, fruit body length, fruit periphery, root weight, seed yield/plant, fruit stalk length, seed weight /fruit, number of seeds / fruit and ascorbic acid content but fruit yield was found to be negatively associated with the percent fruit dry weight, husk weight and days to 50 % fruit ripening. Therefore, these characters may be taken into account during the process of selection for improvement of the fruit yield / plant. 

Key words: Capsicum Annum, Genotypes, Fruit, Seed Yield
