Forty eight mungbean genotypes collected from different parts of the country were morphologically characterized using PPV & FRA descriptors. The descriptors, plant habit, time of flowering, stem pubescence and pod pubescence, showed no variation among the genotypes in the studied 26 descriptors. The characters like growth habit, stem colour, leaf colour, vein colour, leaf size, petiole colour, plant height, curvature of pod, pod position, pod colour, flower colour, days to maturity, seed colour, seed luster, seed size and seed colour showed variation and were recorded during different growth stages of crop. Thus, the present clearly indicated the utilization of the PPV & FRA descriptors for the purpose of registration, maintenance and protection of lines.
