In this experiment data were recorded on plant height, days to 50% flowering, pod length and width, fresh pod weight, number of pickings and yield. Early flowering was recorded in Contender (42.33 days) and IIHR-909 (42.33 days) followed by Arka Komal (43 days) and maximum pod length was noticed in Arka Komal with 16.20 cm. The green pod yield was maximum in IIHR-909 (130.00 q/ha) followed by CH-808 (123.33 q/ha) and MFB-2 (114.07 q/ha).
