Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted with thirty four spine gourd (Momordica dioica Roxb.) genotypes for evaluate their performance for various quantitative as well as qualitative characters. All the qualitative characters viz. fruit colour, fruit shape, leaf colour, leaf margin, leaf pubescence, stem colour, spine strength, conical spine density, pedicel attachment with the fruit, node colour, collection site showed wide variation. Among the genotypes studied. Wide range of variability was also noted with respect to days to first flowering. However, with regard to quantitative character like number of fruits per plant, the highest number (150) was obtained from the genotype PK-49 which was statistically similar to KRISNAPUR (138) while the lowest (54) was from PHULE MD 5-1. The genotype KRISNAPUR gave the highest yield (5982 kg/ha) and followed by the yield (5868 kg/ha). Performed well in respect of studied characters under the agro climatic conditions of north hill resign of Chhattisgarh.
