Abstract:

The investigation was undertaken at Department of Horticulture, SHIATS, Allahabad, during the year 2014. The experiment was laid out in simple Randomized Block Design with 3 replications, 12 genotypes (6 genotypes from IIVR Varanasi and 6 local cultivators) separately. Studies showed that, significant effect on the minimum days to germination (3.53 days), days to first appearance of male  and female flower (34.07 and 38.30 days), node number at which first male and female flower appear (5.60 and 11.53), sex ratio (34.00), length of main vine (5.30m),  minimum days to first harvesting (43.93 days), fruit length (24.27 cm), fruit weight (132.60 gm), fruit diameter (4.75 cm), fruit yield (60.17t/ha), T.S.S. (4.58 0Brix) and vitamin C (4.59 mg/100gm) was observed maximum in treatment with T6 RIGVAR-6. The treatment T6 (RIGVAR-6) was found to be the best out of 12 genotypes in terms of growth, yield, quality and economic returns. The highest B:C ratio (3.86) was found for ridge gourd, in genotypes RIGVAR-6 under the agro- climatic condition of Allahabad.
