Abstract:
During the summer season of 2023, an experiment was conducted at the experimental block of the Department of Vegetable Science, College of Horticulture in Anantharajupeta, Annamaya district, Andhra Pradesh. The primary aim was to assess the performance of various progenies from the F2 segregating population. Among these progenies, F2.33 displayed the highest mean values for vine length, number of branches, sex ratio, and shorter days to the first appearance of the female flower. However, it exhibited the lowest yield per vine. In contrast, F2.65 and F2.69 excelled in terms of vine length, number of branches, and shorter days for the first appearance of the female flower. F2.11 demonstrated the highest number of branches, shorter days for the first appearance of the female flower, and a commendable yield per vine. Meanwhile, F2.10, F2.18, F2.20, F2.21, F2.22, F2.98 and F2.108 exhibited the highest number of branches and shorter days for the first appearance of the female flower. On the other hand, F2.27 recorded the lowest yield per vine among all the evaluated progenies. These findings provide valuable insights into the performance of different progenies and can guide future efforts in crop improvement.
