Abstract:

Winged bean is a multipurpose underutilised legume. It is consumed as leaves, flowers, pods, seeds and also tuberous roots because of their great nutritional values. The present investigation was carried out on performance and variability evaluation for seed Characters and flower colour among 27genotypes of winged bean. The research trial was conducted at Vegetable Research Farm of Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh during kharif season of 2014-2015.Based on different characters, the genotype Ambika WB-13-6 exhibited highest mean performance for seed yield per plant (31.96 gm), mature pod length (17.44 cm.), mature pod width (2.11 cm.) and no. of seeds per pod(13.67) with 70 days 50% flowering as well as average leaf area index at 50% flowering (1.35) followed by RWB-13, EC-27884, EC-17830 and RWB-15 which appeared promising for different characters. Therefore, Ambika WB-13-6 along with the above four genotypes could be tested under different agronomic practices for commercial production and human consumption of this underutilized legume. Creamy white colour, black colour and brown colour types of seed coat as well as white and violet types flower were founded and indicated variation among 27 genotypes of winged bean.
