Papaya is basically a tropical fruit, which can be grown successfully in sub­tropical conditions. The fruit has high nutritive and medicinal value especially vitamin A (2020 IU/l00g). It also possesses vitamin B, folate and pantothenic acid besides minerals like potassium and magnesium. Six papaya varieties was evaluated for yield and quality parameters under northern dry zone of Karnataka during May 2015 to January 2016.The maximum fruit weight (2.36 kg), yield per plant (53.30 kg), fruit length (23.46 cm), fruit diameter (12.69 cm), pulp thickness (3.20 cm), highest estimated yield per hectare (164.46 t/ha) was recorded in the genotype Vinayaka. Maximum fruit breadth (17.23 cm), maximum level of total soluble solids (9.60 0brix), acidity (0.16 %), fruit colour and appearance (7.82), pulp colour (8.68), taste and flavour (8.31), over all acceptability highest score (8.29) was found in the variety Red Lady. Highest cavity diameter (7.52 cm) and shelf life (8.11 days) was recorded in the variety Arka Prabhat, maximum ascorbic acid in the variety Arka Surya (60.86 mg) among six papaya varieties Vinayaka was found to be superior interms of yield and Red lady was found to be superior in quality parameters.

Keywords: Yield, Quality, Evaluation and dry zone.
