Red chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) is the vegetable commodity that is widely cultivated in Indonesia. Growth and yields of the plants may be hampered by drought stress. The research to evaluate the effect of drought stress to agronomical and physiological characteristics of red chilli was done from October 2015 to April 2016 in a screen house of the Horticulture Seed Centre, Jambi Province, Indonesia. The Split Plot Design was used in this research with drought stress as main plot (100%, 75%, 50% of field capacity, FC) and chilli varieties as sub plot (Lado, Kastilo, BCA, Tanamo, Laris, Romario, Ferosa, Azimuth). The maximum decrease of growth and yield was recorded under the high level of water stress (50% FC) compared to optimum water supply (100% FC). The tolerance chilli varieties will increase the proline content and maintain the total sugar and chlorophyll content. Tanamo, Lado, Kastilo and BCA are varieties that can survive under drought stress and still provide the higher yield
