Abstract: An experiment on chilli (Capsicum annuum L) was undertaken to study the correlation and path coefficient for nine traits of F2 population were obtained from the cross of K-1 x China type. Correlation indicated that dry fruit yield per plant was significant and positively associated with plant height, number of branches per plant, number of fruits per plant, pod length, single dry fruit weight, number of seeds per fruit, relative water content and capsaicin. Number of fruits per plant and single dry fruit weight showed the highest positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Direct selection may be executed considering these traits as the main selection criteria to reduce indirect effect of other characters during development of high yielding chilli variety.
