Abstract: Eggplant, as a hardy solanaceous crop it’s very difficult to develop superior drought tolerant hybrids due lack of gene pool. Present study was conducted in a factorial CRD design with three replication over fifty different eggplant genotypes with two drought level. The experimentation resulted highly significant differences (P ≤ 0.01) among the genotypes in different levels of drought treatment except numbers days for flower initiation. Genetic variability analysis shown observed traits had high GCV, PCV, broad sense heritability coupled with high genetic advance under moisture stress and normal moisture condition. Except, traits like plant height and total plant length as well as number of days for flowering resulted moderate PCV and GCV under both the conditions. The overall mean performance exposed that genotypes like M17, Very Green Long, IIHR-7, Solanum Indicum, IC354597-Round, Swarna Mani, IC99676-Round and Jawahar Brinjal-69 are best drought tolerance genotypes in comparison with yield.
