Abstract:

The experiment was conducted at AICRP on vegetable crops, OUAT, Bhubaneswar, India to study the performance of twenty eight bitter gourd hybrids along with eight genetically diverse parents. The analysis of variance for experimental design revealed that the differences among the mean square due to treatments were found highly significant for all the traits. Further variance due to parents and hybrids (within group) were also found significant for all the studied characters. Difference due to parents Vs hybrids were also found highly significant for all characters studied. The parents Phule Green Gold, Improved Katahi and Preethi were observed to be top performing parent for fruit yield per vine and Thusi for number of primary branches per vine and number of fruit per vine. The hybrids Phule Green Gold x Pusa Do Mausami, Phule Green Gold x Preethi and Preethi x Pusa Do Mausami were recorded to be three best performing F1 hybrids for fruit yield per vine with an yield of 3.13, 3.00 and 2.75 kg, respectively. These top performing F1 hybrids can be tested in different seasons over different locations for assessing their stability for high yield.
