Abstract:

The present study on inter relationship among seven qualitative traits (ascorbic acid, oleoresin content, capsaicin content, total extractable colour, red carotenoids, yellow carotenoids, total carotenoids) and fruit yield and the direct and indirect effects of qualitative traits on yield of forty four genotypes of paprika (Capsicum annuum L.), revealed that the analysis of variance exhibited significant differences among the genotypes for all the traits. Dry fruit yield per plant showed significant negative association with ascorbic acid content (rp and rg) and total carotenoids (rp and rg) at both phenotypic and genotypic level and showed significant and negative with red carotenoids and yellow carotenoids at genotypic level only. The path analysis revealed that ascorbic acid, oleoresin content, capsaicin content and total extractable colour had negative direct effect on yield per plant.
