Abstract: The present investigation was conducted with the using of fifteen F1 hybrids developed by the using of diallel mating of six parents excluding reciprocals. The hybrids and parents were evaluated consecutively different three seasons during 2015-16 and pooled analysis was worked out. The observations were recorded on fourteen quantitative traits viz., days to first female flower anthesis, days to first male flower anthesis, node number to first male flower appearance, node number to first female flower appearence, days to first fruit harvest, vine length (m), internodal length (cm), number of primary branches per plant, fruit weight (kg), number of fruits per plant, equatorial circumference of fruit (cm), polar circumference of fruit (cm), flesh thickness (cm), fruit yield per plant (kg). The analysis of variance revealed that mean squares due to genotypes found significant for all the quantitative traits indicating wide range of variability among the genotypes (hybrids and parents). The hybrids viz., P3 × P5, P1 × P3 and P1 × P2 were showed earliness for flowering and marketable fruit yield.
