Abstract:

The present investigation on mean and variability was conducted on genetically diverse thirty F2 progenies of chilli. The observation were recorded on the following traits, plant height, branches per plant, days to 50% flowering, fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit girth, individual fresh fruit weight, individual dry pod weight, fresh fruit yield per plant and dry pod yield per plant. Significant difference was observed among the crosses and also within the crosses for all the traits. On the basis of mean performance, progenies K 1 x Pusa Jwala, K 1 x PKM 1, LCA 625 x K 1, Pusa Jwala x PKM 1, K 1 x Arka Lohit Pusa Jwala x K 1 and Arka Lohit x LCA 334 were superior performed for fruit yield per plant, average fresh fruit and dry pod weight, fruits per plant and took less number of days to 50% flowering. Among the thirty progenies studied in F2 generation, the above said seven cross exhibited high phenotypic coefficient of variation (PCV) and genotypic coefficient of variation for yield and contributing traits indicating that these traits had wide genetic variability and would respond better selection except days to 50% flowering, fruit length and fruit girth. The traits which showed higher mean with moderate to high GCV suggest the presence of genetic variability thereby lending scope for selection
