Abstract:
Bottle gourd [Lagenaria siceraria L. (Moll.) Standl.] is an important tropical species characterized by a wide range of diversity and a low yield, mainly due to number of selection for improved varieties. The present investigations were carried out at the Main Experiment Field, Vegetable Science, ANDUA&T, (Kumarganj), Ayodhya, during the season of Zaid 2019 and 2020. The experiment laid out in randomized complete block design (RBD) with three replications. High heritability coupled with high genetic advance as per cent of mean was observed for fruit length (cm), reducing sugar (%), total sugar (%), and days to first male flower anthesis (days), node number to first female flower appearance (days), primary branches per plant (days), total soluble solids (%) and non-reducing sugar (%). The results indicated that these characters had additive gene effect and therefore, these are more reliable for effective selection for their further improvement.
