Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out with the objective to assess the magnitude and direction of heterosis and to identify good combiners for growth, earliness and yield characters. The maximum heterosis over better parent, the best parent and the commercial check was observed in the cross Bot.G-6-2 X Arka Bahar for all the growth parameters studied except heterobeltiosis for vine length. The cross Bot.G-6-2 X Pusa Naveen exhibited maximum and significant heterobeltiosis for vine length. The crosses Bot.G-2 X Arka Bahar, Bot.G-6-1 X Samrat, Kolkotta Collection X Arka Bahar and Kolkotta Collection X Samrat were found promising for earliness. The crosses Bot.G-6-1 X Samrat and Kolkotta Collection X Samrat (22.93%) followed by Bot.G-6 X Samrat (21.05%) showed significant heterosis over the commercial check in order of merit for fruit yield per vine.
