An investigation was carried out to estimate the genetic variability, heritability and correlation in 38 intergeneric progenies and two parents (Arka Surya and Vasconcellea cauliflora). Wide range of variability was observed in the fruit weight, fruit length, fruit width, fruit volume, cavity index, TSS, pulp thickness, vitamin C, titrable acidity, total carotenoids, lycopene, total phenols and total sugars. Phenotypic coefficient of variation was higher than the genotypic coefficient of variation for the characters studied. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance was recorded for the characters. Phenotypic correlation was found to be significant for all the traits studied, while no significance was observed for genotypic correlation with any of the traits.

Keywords: Correlation, Heritability, Genetic advance and coefficient of variation.
