Abstract: The present investigation was carried out at the Experimental Research Farm, Department of Vegetable Science, Dr. YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, Solan (HP) during Kharif 2013 to estimate variability, heritability and genetic gain in diverse germplasm of bell pepper. The experiment was laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Thirty five genotypes including three check cultivars were evaluated for different horticultural traits. High heritability (92.97%) coupled with high genetic gain (50.86%) was obtained for fruit yield. Hence, selection can prove effective for improvement in fruit yield in bell pepper. High heritability coupled with moderate genetic gain was obtained for number of fruits per plant, average fruit weight and pericarp thickness indicating some scope for their improvement through selection.
