Abstract:

The present study was carried out at Department of Horticulture, Agricultural College and Research Institute, Madurai during 2015-2016 to study the Combining ability estimates for growth, earliness, yield and quality parameters. Sixteen crosses obtained on Line × Tester approach were evaluated for fifteen traits. The variance due to sca was higher than the gca for all the characters, indicating the importance of non-additive gene action. Maximum and positively significant sca effects was observed in the cross L3 X T1 (0.36) followed by L1 X T4 (0.33) for fruit yield per vine as well as fruit yield per hectare. L4 X T4 showed significant sca effects for earliness characters like days to first female flower appearance (-2.75) and days to first harvest (-8.74).
