Abstract:

An experiment was conducted during kharif 2017-2018 at College of Horticulture, Venkataramannagudem, Dr. YSR Horticultural University, Andhra Pradesh (India) to identify potential genotypes for twelve quantitative traits among fifty three genotypes of chilli (Capsicum annuum L.). The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the twelve characters indicating the presence of genetic variability among the genotypes. Among fifty three genotypes, the genotype Meghalaya Local recorded maximum plant height, plant spread and number of primary branches per plant. Whereas, the genotype IHR 2900 recorded the earliest for days to 50 per cent flowering and days to 50 per cent ripening. However, the maximum red ripe fruit yield was recorded in genotype IHR 4611. Meghalaya Local recorded maximum number of fruits per plant, whereas, California Wonder was recorded maximum fruit length, fruit width and fruit weight. The genotype IHR 3478 recorded highest number of seeds per fruit, whereas, the genotype IHR 4604 recorded highest 1000 seed weight. The characters showing wide range of variation provide an ample scope for selecting superior types and the selected genotypes can be used in further breeding programme.
