Metroglyph analysis was done in a group of 23 genotypes of coconut, Cocos nucifera L. The varieties came under two groups based on morphological characters. Three groups were recognized when the classification was made on the basis of nut characters. The exotic cultivars, in general, had relatively higher expression for morphological and nut characters. The possibility of obtaining heterotic hybrids from divergent parental combinations was indicated.
