The present study was carried out to evaluate the mean performance of pumpkin genotypes for growth, yield and quality attributes. Genotypes were collected from various places of North Eastern Region of India and laid out in Randomized Completely Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. The analysis of variance in the present investigation revealed significant differences among 25 pumpkin genotypes for all the studied traits. On the basis of mean performance, the genotype CHFPUM-24 (Landrace from Tripura) was found good for earliness and growth. The genotype CHFPUM-16 (landrace from Imphal, Manipur) was found to be superior for the yield attributing characters while CHFPUM-1 (landrace from Pasighat, Arunachal Pradesh) was found good for fruit quality. So, these genotypes can be used as parental source in future breeding programme.
