Present investigation was undertaken at Research and Instructional Farm, Department of Horticulture, College of Agriculture, Indira Gandhi Krishi Vishwavidyalaya, Raipur (Chhattisgarh) during kharif season of 2010-2011 in a randomized block design with three replications. Evaluation of 23 genotypes of kharif onion revealed that the BKHO-1002 was found best for total bulb yield (39.34 t/ha), average bulb weight (195.63 g), polar and equatorial diameter of bulb (7.78 and 8.18 cm). Whereas, BKHO-1007 recorded highest total soluble solids (13.62%) maximum plant emergence per cent (66.33%) and maximum plant height (72.43 cm) and neck thickness (1.98 cm) recorded in BKHO-1004, number of leaves per plant found maximum (10.53) in BKHO-1005. Analysis of variance revealed that the mean sum of square for all the characters is significant. BKHO-1002 and BKHO-1003 with larger polar and equatorial diameter of bulb, bulb weight, marketable and total bulb yield and BKHO-1007 indicated that maximum TSS are advocated for commercial cultivation in kharif season.
