Abstract:

The maximum number of fruits set was recorded in open-pollination + hand-pollination treatment (80.42% and 77.14%) and open-pollination (78.85% and 75.00%), followed by hand-pollination (65.42% and 61.42%) in C-1076 and C-1106 cultivar respectively. Without insect pollination treatment resulted in zero per cent fruit set in both the pumpkin cultivars (C-1076 and C-1106). Mean fruit weight, fruit length, fruit diameter, number of seeds per fruit, seed test weight, seed germination percentage, seed vigour I and seed vigour II was maximum open-pollination + hand-pollination (2725.70 g, 37.05 cm, 43.08 cm, 457, 88.88 g, 90.75 per cent, 3058.93 and 5.24, respectively) followed by openpollination and hand-pollination in pumpkin (C-1076). Likewise in C-1106, maximum fruit set was recorded in open-pollination + hand-pollination treatment (77.14%) and openpollination (75.00%), followed by hand-pollination (61.42%). Similarly, Mean fruit weight, fruit length, fruit diameter, number of seeds per fruit, seed test weight, seed germination percentage, seed vigour I and seed vigour II was maximum (2131.20 g, 27.87 cm, 48.32 cm, 407, 85.91 g, 82.75 per cent, 3006.98 and 5.18, respectively) in openpollination + hand-pollination followed by open-pollination and hand-pollination in C1106 cultivars. Hence in both cultivars of pumpkin, open-pollination + hand-pollination were the best treatment followed by open pollination and hand pollination
