Ten cultivars of tomato were evaluated on the basis of days to flowering, fruit setting and maturity period, number and weight of fruit per plant, length and width of fruit, average fruit weight, plant height and yield. The cultivars Nova Mech, Early Mech, Chico III, Nadir, Tanja and Sorrento were early in maturity whereas `Samarzano` was a late maturing. The cultivar Tanja produced maximum fruit weight per plant (1.55 Kg) and gave the highest yield of 41.45 t /ha . It was followed by Chico-III and Sorrento which exhibited average yields of 40.32 and 39.13 t/ha respectively.
