The correlation of yield attributing characters with number of capsules/plant and weight of capsules/plant in 16 accessions of cardamom were assessed in an experiment conducted in Karnataka, India . The number of tillers/plant, number of bearing tillers/plant and number of panicles/plant showed positive and significant correlation with number of capsules/plant whereas the correlation between plant height with number of capsules/plant was non-significant. The total number of tillers/plant and number of bearing tillers/plant was significant and positively correlated with fresh weight of capsules/plant. The number of bearing tillers/plant and plant height were positively correlated with fresh weight of capsules/plant but the differences were non-significant.
