Twenty one genotypes of sweet pepper representing different sources were evaluated in Olericulture Division, Horticulture Research Centre (HRC), BARI, Gazipur during 2012 to 2013. Wide variations were observed among the genotypes for the characters studied. Fruit set percent varied from as low as 63% in CA 018 to as high as 90.66% in CA 016. The longest fruit length was observed in fruits of CA 016 (16.20 cm) and the fruit of the genotype CA 015 (6.80 cm) was the shortest followed by the genotypes CA 019 (8.60 cm) and BARI Mistimorich-1 (8.70 cm). Maximum number of fruits plant-1 was observed in CA 016 (90) and minimum was in CA 018 (10). The highest fruit yield plant-1 was recorded in CA 016 (7.09 kg) and the lowest in CA 017 (0.5) and CA 003(0.52 kg). Fruits of CA 005 were the heaviest of all (178 g) while the genotype CA 017 produced fruits with minimum weight (23 g).
