An experiment was conducted at Department of Biotechnology and Crop Improvement, Kittur Rani Channamma College of Horticulture, Arabhavi during the year 2013-14. Ninety-four hybrids derived by crossing forty-seven lines with two testers were evaluated along with parents and commercial check in Latin square design. Data was been subjected to line x tester analysis. Variance due to crosses was significant for all the yield and quality parameters studied. The maximum and significant gca effects in desirable direction was observed in the Line-44 for total fruit yield per plant, Line-7 for average fruit weight, Line-46 for  number of fruits per plant, Line-14 for fruit length, Line-14 for fruit diameter. The crosses Line-24 x Arka Anamika (201.496) followed by Line -23 X IC550848 (176.180) were identified as good specific combiners for total fruit yield. The present investigation reveals that the parents can be used to exploit heterosis.
