Bitter gourd (Momordica charantia L.) is a monoecious and cross pollinated crop with a high degree of variability, having enormous chances of either exploiting hybrid vigour or selection in segregating population. Information on different qualitative and quantitative characters with respect to genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance are of great interest to plant breeders as they play a vital role in the development of a successful crop improvement programme. This article reviews a brief research work carried out both at national and international levels on the genetic variability; heritability and genetic advance of bitter gourd.

Keywords: Bitter gourd, Genetic variability, Heritability, Genetic advance
