Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at the Experimental Field, Division of Vegetable Science, SKUAST-K, Shalimar during Kharief 2018. The experiment was laid out in randomized complete block design (RCBD) with three replications. Cluster analysis grouped thirty genotypes of bottle gourd into three clusters. Cluster I had maximum number of genotypes (25) followed by cluster II (4) and cluster III (1). Maximum inter cluster distance was observed between cluster I and III (311.28) followed by cluster I and II (189.07). Fruit length, fruit yield plant-1 and fruit diameter contributed maximum towards total genetic divergence.
