In the present investigation, fifteen diverse genotypes of coloured capsicum were evaluated in experimental field of Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-Kashmir, Shalimar during kharif 2018. Analysis of variance revealed highly significant differences among genotypes for all the traits. Highest genotypic coefficients of variation were depicted by total carotenoids (38.90), fruit yield plant-1 (27.93), fruit yield plot-1 (26.99) and fruit weight (20.33). The heritability in broad sense was high above 60 per cent for all traits except quality traits. Genetic advance was found to be low in almost all traits. The genotypic correlation coefficients were higher in magnitude than phenotypic correlation coefficients but similar in direction. Fruit yield plot-1 was found to be positively and significantly correlated with plant height, plant spread, number of secondary branches, number of fruits plant-1, average fruit weight, fruit length, fruit diameter, flesh thickness, pedicel length, average seed weight fruit-1, number of seeds fruit-1, fruit yield plant-1, seed yield plant-1 and seed yield plot-1.
