The study was conducted to evaluate the performance of nine pea cultivars i.e. AM-1, Samrina Zard. 226-Y/B, P-48. Olympia, P- 42, Meteor, Knight and P-1 under Faisalabad conditions. Many quantitative characteristics such as seed germination, plant height at the time of first flowering, final plant height, number of leaves per plant, number of days taken to first flowering, number of pods per plant, pod length, green pod weight, number of seeds per pod, green pod yield and crop duration were studied. All the parameters appeared to be purely genetic characters, because the cultivars possessed highly significant difference among them, except seed germination, which depends upon physiological age of seed at harvesting and subsequent handling, and crop duration which was significant on account of other quantitative characters. The cultivars Knight, Meteor and Samrina Zard followed by Olympia were found high yielding as compared to other cultivars because of their ability to produce the higher green pod yields, while the performance of AM-1 and P-48 was poorer on the same account.
