Abstract:

Hybrids in tomato are of great practical importance nowadays owing to their early and high yields in addition to the improved disease resistance and quality characters. Nine parental lines were crossed to obtain 18 F1 hybrids, which were evaluated along with their parents and 2 commercial check hybrids to know their performance under the conditions of Bengaluru, which is the major tomato production hub of India. Among parents IIHR 2853, IIHR 2852 and IIHR 2892 with the yield of 3.31 kg/plant, 3.19 kg/plant and 2.86 kg/plant, respectively were found to be better yielders coupled with admirable quantity of carotenoids and lycopene. However, none of the hybrids was found to be best performer for all the traits under the study, but IIHR 1816 x IIHR 2852, IIHR 1816 x IIHR 2853, IIHR 1816 x IIHR 2890, IIHR 2850 x IIHR 2852, IIHR 2891 x IIHR 2853, IIHR 2892 x IIHR 2852 and IIHR 2892 x IIHR 2890 were best performing in maximum number of quality and yield attributing traits like vitamin C, carotenoids, lycopene, pericarp thickness, average fruit weight and yield/plant, hence they can be further evaluated and used for cultivation in Bengaluru’s condition since their performance is on par with that of standard check hybrids in many of the characters.
