Abstract: Twenty four varieties of chrysanthemum were evaluated with an aim to identify suitable varieties based on different characters under coastal humid climate of Andhra Pradesh at Horticultural Research Station, Venkataramannagudem, during the year 2016-17. The results revealed that Pusa Centenary recorded maximum flower diameter (7.84 cm), less number of days to flowering (63.01 days) and highest flower yield (189.50 g/plant) followed by Neelima (188.67 g/plant) and Gulmohar (179.10 g /plant) for flower yield. Though Yellow Gold, Haldhi Ghati and White Prolific recorded less yield compared to Pusa Centenary (1293.41 g/plot, 1015.85 g/plot and 1480.52 g/plot respectively), they are suitable for this region because they are having good acceptance in the local market due to flower colour and appearance.
