      <Abstract>An investigation was conducted to identify the most desirable genotypes of parthenocarpic cucumber under protected cultivation. Experimental material consists of 23 genotypes of parthenocarpic cucumber including 1 check (KPCH-1) and the experiment was laid out in three replications with support of Randomized Block Design. ANOVA revealed significant differences among the genotypes for 17 traits. Based on the genotypes__ampersandsign#39; mean performance for all traits investigated, m earliest days to first flower (26.80) and minimum inter-nodal length (7.22 cm) was observed in genotype BRPCU-1×BRPCU-8, whereas maximum number of flowers per node (2.20), number fruits per vine (31.47) and yield per vine (3.96 kg) was observed in genotype BRPCU-1×BRPCU-8. The lowest node to the first flower (3.27) was observed in genotype BRPCU-2×BRPCU-7.  Earliest days to first picking (39.80 days) whereas highest TSS (3.87 __degreesignBrix) and longest span of harvesting (58.67 days) was noted in genotype in BRPCU-2×BRPCU-5.   The highest average fruit weight was recorded in genotype BRPCU-2×BRPCU-8 (143.07 g), while the highest fruit length was observed in genotype BRPCU-5 (20.73 cm).  Genotype BRPCU-3×BRPCU-8 (3.90 cm) had maximum fruit diameter. Maximum vine length was recorded in BRPCU-6×BRPCU-7 (3.15 m). The best top-performing genotypes identified in the present study were BRPCU-1×BRPCU-8, BRPCU-2×BRPCU-5, and BRPCU-3×BRPCU-8 were superior for most of the fruit yield components and quality traits.</Abstract>
