Abstract:

The present investigation was carried out at Horticultural Research Station, Lam, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh to elucidate the interrelationship among six quality traits and fruit yield and to estimate the direct and indirect effects of quality traits on yield in forty three genotypes of chilli comprising 30 F1 hybrids, 11 parents and two commercial checks. Fruit yield per plant has showed positive significant association with oleoresin, pungency and red carotenoids whereas, its association with yellow carotenoids was negative and significant. The path analysis revealed that the quality parameters viz., ascorbic acid, oleoresin, pungency and red carotenoids had positive direct effect on fruit yield per plant. Among these four, only red carotenoids have recorded high positive direct effect indicated that direct selection for fruit yield per plant through this trait will be effective.
