Abstract:

Heterosis in chilli was studied in 6 x 6 diallel fashion excluding reciprocals. Analysis of variance revealed that, significant difference among the treatments for all the characters studied. Standard heterosis indicated that the hybrids CA 23 x CA 32 (57.90%) and CA 6 x CA 23 (49.67%) found to be most promising for green fruit yield and other desirable traits. Based on per se performance and standard heterosis, the hybrids CA 23 x CA 32, CA 8 x CA 32, CA 8 x CA 23 and CA 6 x CA 32 were found superior in respect of seven characters viz., days to first flowering, fruit length, fruit girth, fruit weight, seeds per fruit, green fruit yield and yield per plot. These cross combinations could be exploited in heterosis breeding programme.
