The present study was carried out to assess the genetic variability, heritability and genetic advance for different characters in 16 diverse cultivars of mango. The study was conducted at Regional Research Station, Gayeshpur during 2016 and 2018. Random sampling strategy was followed for collection of samples. All the characters showed very small difference between genotypic coefficient of variation (GCV) and respective phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV), indicated that all the characters were least affected by environment. The high phenotypic coefficient of variation and genotypic coefficient of variation were observed for petiole length, inflorescence width, fruit weight, pulp content, stone weight, seed width, seed weight, reducing sugars, non-reducing sugars, titratable acidity, TSS: acid ratio, ascorbic acid and yield. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance were observed for all characters studied indicating these characters are governed by additive gene action and phenotypic selection may be more fruitful. Hence, direct selection may be followed for the improvement of mango for these characters.
