The study was conducted at the Horticulture farm, Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University, Dhaka, Bangladesh during the period from December 2011 to May 2012 to evaluate the performance of Japanese bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.) lines in Bangladesh condition. Three Japanese bunching onion lines viz. L1: White star, L: Moto kura and L3: Akahige or Red hero were tested in this study. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with three replications. Statistically significant variation was recorded for most of the characters of Japanese bunching onion lines. Tallest plant (60.7 cm), maximum number of leaves (8.3), maximum leaf area (333.0 cm), fresh weight of leaves plant-1 (81.7 g), pseudostem length (13.2 cm), pseudostem diameter (20.8 mm), fresh weight of pseudostem plant-1 (28.5 g), yield plot-1 (2.9 kg) of pseudostem and highest yield of pseudostem (14.3 tha-1) were found  in L2, whereas the lowest was recorded from L3. Moto kura was found suitable for cultivation in Bangladesh.

Key words: Allium fistulosum, lines, growth and yield.
