Quantifying the nature and magnitude of variation exist in Indian cauliflower lines for traits of economic importance are vital to plan effective breeding programmed. Replicated field trial was carried on a random selection of 15 genotypes of cauliflower belonging to mid group. Observations recorded on fifteen characters revealed the existence of considerable genetic variability to be exploited in breeding programmed and was reflected in broad range observed for each trait. Plant height, number of leaves per plant, leaf length, leaf width, curd angle, curd diameter, marketable curd weight, net curd weight and yield exhibited high heritability (> 60%) with high genetic advance as % of mean (> 20%) indicating the prevalence additive variance and hence direct selection may be followed for particular traits improvement. Emphasis should be given for genotypes that possessed high net curd weight which had maximum positive contribution on curd yield as per path coefficient analysis.

Keywords: Mid maturing cauliflower, Genetic variability, Correlation, Path coefficient analysis.
