A field investigation was carried out with thirty genotypes of cucumber to evaluate the performance of the genotypes for growth and yield characters under hill zone of Karnataka. The genotype Sirsi Local-2 exhibited superiority for vine length, number of primary branches per plant, days to first harvest of the fruit, per cent marketable fruits per vine and chlorophyll content. Minimum number of node to appear first female flower, highest number of fruits per vine (13.90) and maximum yield per vine were found in the cultivar Poinsette. Fruit yield per hectare was highest in Banglore Local followed by Poinsette and Sirsi Local- 2. Lowest was seen in Pondecherry-1.The best genotypes identified in present investigation based on mean performance were Banglore Local, Poinsette and Sirsi Local -2. These genotypes can be utilized further for crop improvement programme in cucumber. Variations among different genotypes of cucumber may be attributed to inherent genetic makeup of the genotype and influence of environmental conditions.
