Abstract:
Thirty four diverse genotypes of bottle gourd collected from different indigenous sources were planted in randomized complete block design and were assessed to know character association and path coefficient analysis for different horticultural traits. Fruit yield per vine was positively and significantly correlated with number of primary branches per vine, number of secondary branches per vine per vine, internodal length, sex ratio, fruit girth, fruit weight, number of fruits per vine, pericarp thickness and vine length at final harvest at both phenotypic and genotypic levels. Path analysis revealed that the direct effects through number of primary branches per vine, days to first fruit harvest, fruit girth, fruit weight, number of fruits per vine, cavity diameter and hundred seeds weight positively contributed towards fruit yield per vine at both genotypic and phenotypic level.
