Twenty one accessions of okra were assessed for variability for 12 characters. Highly significant differences were observed among the accessions. High phenotypic and genotypic coefficient of variation was observed for per cent incidence of YVMV, yield per plant, fruit weight, and number of fruits per plant indicating the existence of wider genetic variability for these traits in the germplasm. High heritability accompanied with high genetic advance was noticed for yield per plant, fruit weight and number of fruits per plant suggesting that they can be improved through direct selection due to predominant additive variation.

Keywords: Okra, Variability, Heritability, Genetic advance.
