Fifteen gynoecious parthenocarpic hybrids hybrids/lines of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) were evaluated under polyhouse (fifty percent shade/naturally ventilated) conditions for yield and quality. The genotypic and phenotypic coefficient of variations were highest for nodal position of first female flower, number fruits, fruit weight and fruit yield per plant which indicates maximum variability is existing in the genotypes. High genetic advance as per cent mean was observed for most of the characters, indicating that these characters are controlled by additive gene action. Correlation studies revealed that at both phenotypic and genotypic level highly significant and positive association of fruit yield per plant with number of fruits per plant and negative association with days to first female flower, nodal position of first female flower and days to fifty percent flowering indicating the possibility of simultaneous selection for these traits to improve the fruit yield. maximum positive direct effects towards fruit yield per plant was contributed by days to fifty percent flowering, number of fruits per plant and fruit weight were the most influencing factors.
