Correlation and path analysis were carried out in forty tomato genotypes for yield and quality characters. The association studies showed that fruit yield per plant was positively and significantly correlated with number of fruits per plant and fruit width. However, fruit yield per plant was negatively and significantly correlated with days to last fruit harvest and shelf life. Path analysis studies done to study the cause and effect relationship revealed that plant height, number of fruits per plant, fruit weight, fruit length, fruit width and TSS had high positive direct effects on fruit yield per plant. Hence, direct selection for these traits is done for improving fruit yield per plant.
