Abstract:

An experiment was carried in Horticultural College and Research Institute, Periyakulam, during 2017.The observation were recorded on the following traits, vine length, node at which first female flower appears, days to appearance of first female flower, number of female flowers per vine, days to first fruit harvest, number of fruits per vine, sex ratio, fruit yield per vine, fruit length, average fruit weight, fruit width, fruit cavity, flesh thickness, total soluble solids, protein, ascorbic acid, iron and momordicine content. The highest mean recorded in cross P1×P5 ranked the higher order for vine length, node at which first female flower appears, days to appearance of first female flower, number of female flowers per vine, number of fruits per vine, days to first harvest, fruit yield per vine, fruit length, fruit width, average fruit weight, ascorbic acid content, iron, total soluble solids and momordicine content in F2 and F3 generations. The cross P2×P5 was the next best which showed desirable per se performance for traits viz., vine length ,days to appearance of first female flower, number of female flowers per vine, number of fruits per vine, fruit length, fruit width, average fruit weight, iron and momordicine content. The cross P3×P6, the next best which showed desirable per se performance for traits viz., vine length , node number at which first female flower appears, days to appearance of first female flower, number of fruits per vine, fruit length, fruit width, average fruit weight, and momordicine content. The progenies P1×P5, P2×P5 and P3×P6 showed the desirable per se performance in F3 generation and also economic traits will be increasing when compared F2 generation and also revealed that high mean was relatively effective in identifying the superior segregants.
