Abstract:
A set of 42 genotypes including 6 females, 5 males, their 30 resultant hybrids and one commercial check variety (GJOH-4) were sown during summer-2018 at Vegetable Research Station, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh to study the magnitudes of heterosis using line x tester analysis for ten characters. Significant differences were observed among parents and hybrids indicating considerable genetic variation among these genotypes. Significant standard heterosis and high per se performance with regards to fruit yield per plant were recorded by the crosses viz., JOL-2K-19 x AOL-13-73, JOL-2K-19 x EC-169513 and GO-2 x EC-169513
