Abstract:

The experiment was conducted to study the 24 tomato genotypes for growth, yield and quality attributes. Among the 24 genotypes, genotype D-6-1-9-6-1 and Nandi was exhibited least days taken to fifty percent flowering (26.50 days), IIHR-2201 was recorded highest number of branches at 45 DAT (5.32), 60 DAT (8.92), number of flowers cluster-1 (6.06), number of fruits cluster-1 (52.32), fruit yield plant-1 (3.06 kg) and fruit yield ha-1 (68.06). Genotype IIHR-2200 was recorded maximum average fruit weight (165.37 g) and number of locules fruit-1 (10). Genotype C-13-1-2-1 was recorded highest TSS (6.65 0Brix), fruit firmness in Kashi Vishesh (2.97 kg/cm2), titrable acidity in IIHR-2198 (0.57), TSS: acid ratio in Kashi Amrutha (33.03), ascorbic acid in D-12-1-6-1 (33.16 mg/100 g) and pH in A-15-3-2-1 (4.50), pericarp thickness in IIHR-2199 (5.82 mm). These findings will help to select the best genotype for further breeding programme.


Keywords: Growth, Yield, Quality, TSS: acid ratio.
