To evaluate different hybrids of cucumber for their growth and yield under Prayagraj Agro-climatic condition; a field experiment was conducted on the research farm of the Department of Horticulture, SHUATS, Prayagraj during rainy season 2019-2020. For the evaluation eleven hybrid varieties such as Chitra, NS 415, Manasi, Don, Shighra, JK Manali, Kohinoor, Ragini, Manish, Raaj and Himani are taken for the study in a Randomized Block Design with three replications in 1.5 x 0.6 m2 plot. Early germination was observed in Kohinoor followed by Ragini recorded 4.25 and 4.33 days respectively. The study revealed that the maximum vine length 220.46cm and 220.3cm was reported in Ragini and Himani at an average taken for 30, 60 and 90 days. The number of primary branches was maximum in Ragini 10.43 at 90 DAS. At 90 DAS the number of leaves was high in Ragini followed by Himani which was 73 and 72.10 respectively. Days to first female flower appearance and node to first female flower appearance was minimum seen in Kohinoor and that was about 32.55 and 4.9 respectively. Kohinoor was found to be the best variety for fruit length, weight, and diameter with 19.61cm, 168.44gm and 4.01cm respectively followed by Himani with 18.72cm length 167.37gm weight and 3.89cm diameter respectively. Kohinoor produced the maximum fruit yield/ha and the fruit yield was about 59.7 t followed by Ragini 55.4 t/ha. Among the different varieties studied, Kohinoor performed best for flower, fruit, germination, and yield characters. And the best varieties followed are Himani and V8 Rahina. The study revealed that, the hybrid varieties of cucumber provide high benefit to the farmers through easy cultivation, better stress tolerance, diseases resistance and higher yields.
