Abstract:
Forty four genotypes of paprika (Capsicum annuum L.) were evaluated at Horticultural Research Station, Lam, Guntur (Andhra Pradesh), India; to select the promising genotypes for qualitative traits viz., vitamin C, oleoresin content, capsaicin content, total extractable color, red carotenoids, yellow carotenoids and total carotenoids. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the seven characters. Among forty four genotypes, the highest ascorbic acid content was recorded for the genotype LCA- 510 (207.30), while the lowest was observed in LCA- 443 (26.78). The highest oleoresin content was recorded by the genotype LCA-490 (15.35) and the lowest in LCA-482 (4.50). The highest capsaicin content was recorded by the genotype LCA-453 (20767.50), while the lowest was in LCA-482 (3002.50). The maximum color value was observed in the genotype LCA-499 (178.71) and the minimum in LCA-476 (37.50). The maximum per cent of red carotenoids was observed for genotypes LCA-510 (0.46) and the minimum in LCA-439 (0.03). The maximum per cent of yellow carotenoids was observed for the genotype LCA-436 and LCA-488 (0.37) and the minimum for LCA-425 (0.03).
