Abstract: Heterosis was estimated over better parent, respectively among 45 F1 hybrids for yield and related traits. The most desirable cross combination viz., KS-227 x Roma for fruit yield plant-1 also showed desirable better parent heterosis for days to first picking and fruit size. The cross combinations Local x Marglobe (number of primary branches plant-1), DVRT-1 x S-II (average fruit weight), Arka Vikas x KS-227 (plant height), Marglobe x Roma (flesh thickness), KS-227 x Roma (number of fruits plant-1), VLT-32 x Roma (total soluble solids) and VLT-32 x Shalimar-I (Vitamin C) showed highest better parent heterosis. These cross combinations also revealed high per se performance.
