The experiment was conducted at University of Agricultural Sciences, GKVK, Bengaluru, India to study the performance of 24 bitter gourd hybrids. Among these hybrids Coimbatore Long x Panurthy was recorded highest yield per vine (2.32 kg), average fruit weight (85.10 g), per cent fruit set (93.28), days to opening of first male flower appearance (37.32 days), day to fifty per cent flowering (83.12 days) and days to first harvest (64.07 days). Lesser number of seeds fruit-1 was recorded in Arka Harit x Coimbatore Small (12.30), maximum average fruit length in Green Long x Panurthy (25.15 cm), maximum sex ratio was recorded in Green Long x Nanjangood Local. Maximum productive vine length was recorded in White Long x Panurthy at 45 DAS (114.47 cm), 60 DAS (159.91 cm) and 90 DAS (296.28 cm).

Keywords: Bitter gourd, Vine length, Per cent fruit set, Yield per vine.
