Twenty six gerbera varieties were evaluated for cut flower production under polyhouse and field conditions. Dune recorded maximum plant height (43.19 and 37.16 cm) and flower stalk length (65.85 and 60.12 cm) both under polyhouse and field conditions, respectively. The flower size was found maximum in Sunway (13.17 cm) under polyhouse conditions, while it was found maximum in Dune (11.58 cm) under field conditions. Dune also registered the maximum vase-life for under polyhouse (10.43 days) and field (8.20 days) conditions. The maximum number of flowers per plant (58.14) was recorded in Dune under polyhouse and for Dana Ellen (42.34) under field conditions.
