Abstract:

Seven genetically dissimilar parental lines  i.e., Pusa Ausadhi, Jhalri, Kathi No.1, Pusa Rasdar, BRBT Local, Konkan Tara, Solan Hara were crossed in a diallel (half) pattern to get 21 hybrid  to investigate extent of heterosis fruit yield and quality traits in bitter gourd at vegetable research farm, Bihar agricultural university, Bihar during summer season 2016 and 2017. The cross  combination Pusa Ausadhi X BRBT Local exhibited maximum heterosis over standard check for yield and yield attributing trait like  number of primary branch, vine length, fruit length and fruit weight. In case of quality parameter, BRBT Local X Konkan Tara exhibit highest magnitude of heterosis for ascorbic acid and chlorophyll content.
