Abstract:

Significant differences were observed among the genotypes for all the traits, indicated presence of sufficient variation. The estimates of PCV and GCV were high for first fruit producing node. Moderate PCV and GCV were noticed for days to 50 per cent flowering, plant height, fruit yield per plant, fruits per plant, nodes per plant and internodal length. High heritability along with high genetic advance were observed for days to 50 per cent flowering, fruit yield per plant, fruits per plant and nodes per plant indicating the role of additive gene action for their inheritance indicating these characters could be improved through direct selection. Fruit yield per plant showed positive association with plant height, harvest duration, fruits per plant, nodes per plant, fruit length and average fruit weight, while negative association with days to 50 per cent flowering, days to first picking, first fruit producing node, internodal length and dry matter.The number of fruits per plant had maximum direct effect on fruit yield per plant followed by days to 50 per cent flowering, average fruit weight and plant height. Harvest duration, days to first picking, first fruit producing node, internodal length, fruits per plant and fruit length contributed to fruit yield per plant indirectly.
