Investigations were carried out on fifteen cultivars of strawberry for growth, yield and quality characters. The results recorded reveal that maximum plant height (35.30cm) and number of runners (8.82) were in cultivar Catskill, however the average plant spread was found to be highest  in Curaltar (34.16 cm) while cultivar Camarosa recorded maximum leaf area (42.86 cm2). Longest cultivar duration of bloom (85.30 days) was observed in cultivar Everly and minimum (55.38 days) in cultivar Winter Dawn. The number of flowers per plant ranged between 10.92 (Oso Grande) to 26.55 (Camarosa). The average fruit length ranged from 2.55 cm (Brighton) to 4.28 cm (Curaltar) while the average fruit diameter ranged from 2.09 cm (Catskill) to 3.39 cm (Camarosa). Highest fruit weight (16.30 g) was observed in cultivar Kimberly followed by cultivar Honeoye (14.12 g). Cultivar Brighton recorded highest TSS (12.63 0Brix), total sugars content (8.58) and reducing sugars (7.70) however highest titrable acidity (1.22 %) was found in Honeoye. Highest fruit yield (290.35 q/ha) was recorded in Camarosa and lowest fruit yield (59.81 q/ha) was recorded in cultivar Missionary.
