Thirty-five chilli ( Capsicum annuum L.) genotypes were evaluated in a field study to assess genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance. Higher phenotypic and genotypic coefficients of variation were observed for leaf area, fruits per plant, fruit weight, fruit length, fruit girth and yield per plant. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance observed for these characters imply the potential for crop improvement through selection.
