With these objectives, the present investigation is carried out to evaluate and characterize twenty one brinjal genotypes during two consecutive autumn-winter season of 2014-2016. A total of forty seven characters viz. growth, yield and morphological, were studied and significant variation observed among the genotypes collected across the country. This variation may be due to the effect of genotype, environment or their interaction. A randomized block design with three replication has been used for this experiment. Mean data pooled over the years has been furnished and statistically analyzed for all the characters except number of fruits per plant, weight of fruits, number of seeds per fruit, yield per plant and yield per hectare. Though genotype BCB-27 followed by BCB-8, is the highest yielder/plant for two seasons, BCB-8 is superior to any other genotypes in total fruiting period, fruit length and number of fruits per plant.
