Abstract:
Chilli is a vegetable and spice crop grown all over the world that belongs to the Solanaceae family and the genus Capsicum. Commercial farming of chilli has been highly successful because of its high market value in both national and international markets. It can be grown successfully in pots, backyard, containers, open field, green houses, polyhouses and under shade nets. This study was conducted to assess the performance of chilli genotypes belonging to different chilli species for growth, yield and quality characters under shade net condition in the Coimbatore region. The experiment was conducted in Randomized Block Design with two replications. A total of 14 chilli genotypes belonging to Capsicum annuum (CA-CBE-199, CA-CBE-200, CA-CBE-201, CA-CBE-202), Capsicum frutescence (CF-CBE-004, CF-CBE-005, CF-CBE-006, CF-CBE-007) and Capsicum chinense (CC-CBE-001, CC-CBE-002, CC-CBE-003, CC-CBE-004, CC-CBE-005, CC-CBE-016) were included in the study. Observation on 13 characters viz., plant height (cm), stem girth (cm), number of leaves per plant, number of branches per plant, number of fruits per plant, fruit length (cm), fruit girth (cm), individual fresh fruit weight (g), individual dry fruit weight (g), fresh fruit weight per plant (g), dry fruit weight per plant (g), number of seeds per fruit, and ascorbic acid content (mg) were recorded. From the overall result of the experiment, it is concluded that the genotypes CA-CBE-199, CA-CBE-202, CC-CBE-001, CC-CBE-002, CC-CBE-005 and CC-CBE-016 performed well in terms of growth, yield and quality characters under shade net in the Coimbatore region.
