Seven wild Solanum species (viz., S. torvum, S. macrocapon, S. incanum, S. aethiopicum, S. sisymbrifolium, S. viarum, and S. indicum) were grafted onto three brinjal scions (viz., Patakata, PusaShyamla, and Bhangor) for its evaluation based on compatibility ratio and further characterization of successful graft combination for morphological, yield and quality attributing characters. On persual of grafting success percentage, Patakata and PusaShyamla grafted onto S. torvum had high compatibility and success rate. The species S. torvum exhibited better adaptability to the prevailing climate which led to more success indicating their compatibility. Complete failure on grafting was noticed in the species S. aethiopicum, S. indicum, and S. sisymbrifolium. The vegetative parameters were found to be maximum from the grafting combination of Patakata onto S. torvum, wherein PusaShyamla grafted onto S. torvum and S. macrocarpon exhibited high yield attributing characters and crop duration. Given quality parameters, the maximum values were attained from the combination of PusaShyamla and Patakata onto S. torvum.

Keywords: Grafting, Solanum melongena, compatibility, morphological, quality and yield
