Morphological characterization of okra [Abelmoschus esculentus (L.) Moench] germplasm is a prerequisite in any crop improvement programme. 19 accessions of okra collected from different parts of India and Japan were evaluated in 2016 at Chaudhary Sarwan Kumar Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvavidyalaya Palampur H.P. for various morphological traits like immature fruit colour, fruit pubescence, ridges per fruit and plant height at the time of horticultural maturity. Among the evaluated genotypes, 2 and 12 had dark green and green fruit colour, respectively.16 had downy fruit pubescence, 17 with five ridges per fruit, 15 genotypes with plant height of 151-250cm and four genotypes with101-150cm. Green colored fruits were prominent. 14, 2, 2 and 1 genotypes were categorized under green group, yellowish green group, dark green group and dark red group, respectively. 9801, Palam Komal, Hisar Unnat, Parbhani Kranti, VRO-6 and VRO-4 were the genotypes which had potential for exploitation in future breeding programme.
