Abstract: The field experiment was conducted with a view to work out the phytochemical, morphological and biochemical characters in twenty seven genotypes of okra. The results revealed, that all the phytochemicals, only flavanoids, glycosides and terpenoids are present and remaining two were absent in all the genotypes of okra. The genotypes AOL 14-32, Kashi kranti and AOL 09-02 was registered as a higher content of glycosides, flavanoids and terpenoids. While in biochemical, the genotype JDNO 11-11 contains the maximum moisture (7.02 %), acid value (9.74%) and free fatty acids (4.90 %).The crude protein content was higher in Pusa sawani (21.33%), whereas, the total lipid was found higher in Kashi kranti (16.01%). That higher plant height observed was in Red okra (127.06 cm). Parbhani kranti recorded as a higher fruit length (12.76 cm), while fruit weight (17.30 gm), fruit girth (7.83 cm) and fruit density (1.69 g/ cm3) was higher in GP OK-292. The fruit volume was recorded higher in AOL 14-08 (10.46 cm3).
