In the present study, observations on 12 important biometric characters were recorded from F2 segregants of two crosses of bhendi viz., Cross 1 [SKY/DR/RS/107 (P 1) X Tiruchi Local (P 2)] and Cross 2 [IC69257 (P 3) X 770 (P 4)], along with their four parents and a check (Arka Anamika). The research work was carried out in Karaikal, U.T. of Puducherry during 2018. The per se performance of parents had revealed the highest mean for yield plant-1 and fruit girth in P 1 (SKY/DR/RS/107), while the highest mean for number of fruits plant-1 was observed in P 3 (IC69257). Segregants of Cross 2 had recorded higher mean for fruit yield plant-1, while mean for number of fruits plant-1 and fruit weight were found higher in Cross 1 and both the crosses had shown wide ranges for traits such as fruit length, fruit weight, plant height at final harvest, number of fruits plant-1 as well as fruit yield plant-1. The mean performances of both crosses were found superior to the check Arka Anamika for yield as well as most other yield contributing traits indicating the scope for identification of superior segregants of bhendi under coastal conditions of Karaikal.

Keywords: Bhendi, per se performance, range, F2 segregants and Arka Anamika
