A set of twelve genotypes received from Central Plantation Crop Research Institute, Kasaragod, maintained and evaluated at Coconut Research Station, Veppankulam were studied for variability and character correlation among the fruit/nut characters. A wide range of variability was observed among the genotypes studied. Correlation studies revealed that significant positive correlation among the fruit/nut characters were observed. So selection of each character helps simultaneously on the improvement of other characters which were coinciding each other.
