Abstract:
To characterize the 31 genotypes of bird eye chilli for various Horticultural characters an investigation was carried out in Sirsi, Uttara Kannada district. Out of 31 genotypes characterized, high coefficient of variation (C.V) was observed for yield characters like, fruit length (16.78 %), fruit yield per plant (11.12 %) followed by dry weight of 100 fruits (10.84 %) suggesting that these traits should be given top priority during selection programme. Accessions viz., 7, 6 and 28 showed superior performance for above parameters, hence these lines may be directly used for cultivation or as a source of desirable traits in a breeding programme for the improvement of fruit yield in bird eye chilli.
