Okra is one of the most important vegetables member of Malvaceae family. It is thought to be originated from West African and Ethiopian regions. Generally the success of any crop improvement program largely depends on the magnitude of genetic variability, genetic advance, character association, direct and indirect effects on yield and yield attributes. Genetic diversity is important for selection of parents to recover transgressive segregants. Studies in this direction are very less and can not to be generalized for every climatic condition and with other genetic materials. Hence, the information in a collection of some genotypes of okra in order to formulate a sound breeding plan for its improvement has been reviewed here.
