Abstract:

Identification and use of region specific varieties or cultivars would certainly improve sustainable growth, yield and economic returns. To know the performance of papaya varieties for growth parameters under northern dry Zone was carried out during May 2015 to January 2016 at Haveli, Bagalkot (Fruit orchard), University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot, with 6 papaya varieties. The highest plant height (146.15 cm), number of leaves (29.50), number of flowers (172.07) average number of flowers per plant (103.11) and average number of fruits per plant (25.71) was recorded in the variety Amrita. The maximum plant girth (41.39 cm), early flowering (72.64 days), early fruit formation (79.79 days), early fruit harvesting (134.54 days) and the minimum crop duration (214.34 days) was recorded in the variety Red Lady. The highest internodal length in the genotype Coorg Honey Dew (7.29 cm) and the maximum number of fruit sin the genotype Vinayaka (36.31). Among the six varieties Amrita and Coorg Honey Dew were found to be superior over other varieties.
