Abstract. The aim of the present study was to generate information on variation of some important yield components in a coriander collection. The study was conducted in the Institute of Agriculture – Karnobat, during the period 2008-2010 and included 81 coriander accessions. The experiment was laid out in a randomised complete block design with three replications. Ten plants were randomly selected from each plot and data were collected for plant height, number of branches per plant, number of umbel per plant, number of fruits per umbel, fruit weight per umbel, 1000-fruits weight and fruit weight per plant. A large variation was observed for most of the studied traits. Suitable accessions for future use in coriander breeding program were identified.
