The present investigation was carried out at Department of Horticulture, Lovely Professional University, Phagwara during 2017-18 with an aim to evaluate okra genotypes for growth and yield parameter under Punjab condition. Various morphological parameters viz., days to germination, plant height at different intervals (cm), number of branches per plant, number of pods per plant, days required for first flowering, days required for 50% flowering, fruit length (cm), fruit weight (g) and yield per plant (g) were recorded. Among all genotypes, Hari Kranti took minimum days for germination whereas genotype F1 Farid took maximum days for germination. Genotype OH 2324 was rated as superior genotype for plant height, number of branches per plant, number of fruits per plant, fruit yield per plant and fruit weight. Result obtained from present study provided useful information on variability among various morphological traits of okra genotypes which can be used in future breeding programmes.  From the present investigation it can be concluded that okra genotype OH 2324 performed well for various growth and yield traits under Punjab condition.

Key words: Okra, Genotype, Growth, Yield, Morphological traits
