Abstract:

An experiment entitled Performance of Different Hybrids of Watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) under Prayagraj Agro-climatic Condition, conducted with twelve Watermelon hybrids was evaluated at SHUATS, Prayagraj in randomized block design with three replications during summer season 2019 for growth, yield and fruit quality traits of Watermelon. Early germination was observed in hybrid F1 Sartaj-295 followed by Hemavathi recorded 6.33 and 7.33 days respectively. The maximum vine length (cm) measured at 30, 60, and 90 DAS was found in variety F1 Sartaj -295 followed by F1 Ajay with (123.21, 238.92 ,353.83) and (73.91, 148.78,338.12) respectively. The maximum number of male and female flower per plant was also found in F1 Sartaj-295 with (50.91) and (8.55) respectively. F1 Sartaj-295 was found to be the best variety for fruit length, girth, and weight with 34.87cm, 47.68cm, and 2.05gm respectively. The highest fruit yield per plant (kg) and average yield per hectare (Q) was also found in F1 Sartaj-295 (27.23 and 1815.42) followed by Sweet star (22.38 and 1492.04). The quality for colour and appearance, texture, flavor and taste and overall acceptability score was recorded in F1 Sartaj-295 (8.00, 8.67, 8.00 and 8.22). The highest TSS (Brix0) (15.10) was recorded in F1 Sartaj-295. The economics: gross return (1089252 Rs/ha), net return (918090.4 Rs/ha) and Benefit Cost ratio (6.36) was recorded maximum for F1 Sartaj-295. Thus, F1 Sartaj-295 of watermelon performed best in terms of growth, yield, and quality parameters under the Prayagraj Agro-climate condition.
