Screening of different exotic lines of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) under the agro climatic condition of Haripur. Abstract Performance of fourteen different tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L.) lines were evaluated at seed multiplication Farm Panian Haripur during 2013-2014. The study was laid out in randomized complete block design with three replications. Data was recorded on days to picking, days to flowering, fruits per plant -1 , pericarp thickness, shelf-life, plant height, fruit

Maximum values were observed for days to flowering (47.66), days to picking (116.66 days), flowers cluster -1 (6.72), fruits cluster -1 (4.88), fruit weight (105.10 g), plant height (120 cm), fruit diameter (5.83 cm), fruit length enclosure (6.26), pericarp thickness enclosure (0.94 cm), shelf-life (11.33 days), fruits plant -1 (32) and yield plant -1 (1247.55 grams). Whereas, minimum values were observed in days to flowering (24.66 days), days to picking (89.00), flowers cluster -1 (3.55), fruits cluster -1 (1.77), fruits plant -1 (9.62), fruit weight (45.90 g), plant height (73 cm), fruit diameter (4.09 cm), fruit length enclosure (4.63 cm), pericarp thickness enclosure (0.52 cm), The shelf-life (4 days), fruits plant -1 (9.62), yield plant -1 (397.88 g). Among the studied lines, the LINE-105 was high yielding showing superiority in many contributing traits such as flowers cluster -1 , fruit plant -1 and yield and hence recommended for general cultivation. However the lines L108 and L109 exhibited better performance for majority of the traits, except yield, therefore these two lines could be used in further breeding programs.
