A field experiment was conducted to assess the performance of tuberose cultivars used for spikes production under Western Utter Pradesh conditions at Research Farm, under Crop Cafetaria Unit, Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Hastinapur, SVP University of Agriculture & Technology, Meerut (UP) India during the year 2014-15 and 2015-16. Eight potential cultivars namely Mexican Single, Arka Nirantara, Shringar, Rajat Rekha, Pearl Double, Suvasini, Vibhav and Swarn Rekha were performed in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Tuberose cultivars varied significantly for growth and flowering parameters. Among the various cultivars tested, the longest spike was recorded in the cv. Shringar (74.09 cm) which was at par with cvs. Maxican Single (73.53 cm), Arka Nirantara (71.24 cm) and Rajat Rekha (71.03 cm), whereas the cultivar Swarn Rekha exhibited shortest spike length (63.86 cm). Number of florets/spike was found to be maximum in Vaibhav (32.32) being at par with Suvasini (31.32), Swarn Rekha (28.75) and Pearl Double (28.58). The minimum number of florets/spike was observed in cv. Rajat Rekha (17.55). The maximum production of spikes/ha was recorded in Suvasini (184110 Nos.) followed by Vaibhav (183731 Nos.), Shringar (183219 Nos.) and Arka Nirantara (182271 Nos.). The minimum number of spikes/ha was recorded in cv. Swarn Rekha (130640 Nos.).
