The objective of this study was to determine the relationships among fruit yield per plant (Kg), growth and biochemical traits using twenty one genotypes (15 F1 hybrids and 6 Parents) of pumpkin during three seasons (E1, E2, E3) and pooled analysis worked out. The observations were measured on biochemical traits and fruit yield per plant. The present investigation revealed that the fruit yield per plant had exhibited significant and positive phenotypic correlation with total soluble solids, ascorbic acid and negative and significant correlation with non-reducing sugars during E1 (Kharif, 2015). However during E2 Rabi season, 2015-16 biochemical traits like as dry matter content, total soluble solids, total sugars, reducing and non-reducing sugars, ascorbic acid and β-carotene were positively and significantly associated with fruit yield per plant at phenotypic level. Fruit yield per plant had positive and significant with total soluble solids, ascorbic acid, β-carotene and negative significant correlation with non-reducing sugars during E3 (Zaid, 2016). The pooled analysis revealed that the total soluble solids, ascorbic acid and β-carotene were significantly and positively correlated with fruit yield per plant at phenotypic level.
