In the experiment twenty five genotypes of onion were evaluated for their growth, yield and quality attributes during Kharif season at College of Horticulture, Kolar, Karnataka by adopting RBD with two replications. The growth characters appeared significant differences among the genotypes evaluated. The genotype Super Flare exhibited maximum plant height (68.45cm), number of leaves (13.60) leaf length (59.15cm) and leaf width (1.39cm). While, minimum bulb neck and collar thickness was registered in Rampur Local (0.40cm) and Arka Bindu (1.10cm), respectively. However, the genotype Super Flare registered maximum number of rings (10.34) and the genotype Arka Kirthiman revealed minimum number of centers (1.20). The quality parameters like TSS, pungency and dry matter content was observed maximum in genotype Arka Bindu (17.33 ͦbrix, 6.36µmole./g FW and 19.40%, respectively). With respect to yield parameters, the genotype Super Flare noticed maximum average bulb weight (135.00 g) and ten bulb weight (1380.00 g). However, Maximum bulb yield was documented in Super Flare (38.16 t/ha). On the basis of yield and quality parameters Super Flare, S-780, Arka Bindu and Rampur Local were found best suited for Kharif season cultivation in Eastern Dry Zone of Karnataka.

Key words: Onion, Genotypes, Kharif, Bulb yield, Pungency.
