Selection of adapted varieties to environmental factors and soil types are paramount to growing profitable cauliflower crops. Varieties are selected for uniform maturity, field holding capability, head size, shape and color. The objective of this demonstration trial is to evaluate new and existing commercial varieties under agro-climatic condition of Allahabad.  Eleven varieties with three replications in RBD were planted and evaluated at Horticulture research farm of department of Horticulture at Sam Higginbottom Institute of Agriculture Technology and Sciences, Allahabad, (Deemed-to-Be-University), Allahabad Uttar Pradesh India, for their agronomic characteristics and their commercial values. All varieties tested performed well, indicating that when planted under similar conditions and planting dates, these varieties are expected to do well. However, a significant head weight and head diameter difference was observed among varieties tested. Amongst all the cauliflower hybrids variety evaluated for growth, yield and quality test in present investigation revealed that the variety Madhuri recorded highest plant height (25.76cm), Number of leaves per plant (21.33) plant spread (64.56cm), diameter of curd (18.00cm), weight of untrimmed curd (2.84 kg), weight of trimmed curd (864.00g), curd yield (456.45kg ha-1) and vitamin C (53.57mg/100g each). Cauliflower hybrid variety for growth yield and quality character hybrid variety   Madhuri is recommended for commercial cultivation in winter season of   Allahabad agro – climatic condition.
