Okra or bhendi is the only commercial vegetable crop of the Malvaceae family. India stands first in area and production of okra in the world. At the same time, the crop is also affected by various pest and diseases. None of the varieties released are persistence in resistance. Hence new breeding lines and breeding tools are introduced to curtail the uncertainty in this tetraploid allogamous crop. During 2014-15, a preliminary study with four wild genotypes and Arka Anamika (control) were selected from the in-vivo germplasm maintained at the Department of Horticulture, AC&RI, Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. The genotypes were evaluated for various morphological, reproductive and YVMV scaling and comprehensive results were obtained. There were significant differences for the characters accessed. The wild genotypes were entirely different from the cultivated type for the characters viz., number of branches per plant, days to flowering, pod length, pod girth, pod weight, total crop duration, stem pigmentation and YVMV resistance. All the four wild genotypes were immune to YVMV. Based on the present investigation, all the four genotypes can be successfully deployed as clones for okra grafting programme.
