Abstract:
Vegetables are important component of balanced human diet. Advanced production technologies are being followed to measure productivity and quality of produce. In this experiment 22 genotypes were studied for higher yield along with better nutritional qualityunder which Arka Vikas showed, highest average fresh fruit weight and dry weight which depicts that Arka Vikas had minimum moisture percentage (%), whereas genotype 2014/TODVAR-6 showed maximum moisture percentage (%). The lowest average fresh fruit weight was observed in the genotype 2015/TOINDVAR-1. The highest fruit length (cm), diameter (cm) was observed in the genotypes 2013/TODVAR-1 and 2015/TOINDVAR-5,respectively. Genotype 2015/TOCVAR-1 and 2015/TOCVAR-6 showed maximum shelf life (days) and Arka Vikas gave higher yield (q/h) among all genotypes. Significant differences were observed for various biochemicals among the genotypes. Genotype 2014/TODVAR-3 showed highest β-carotene (mg/100 ml) and lycopene content (mg/100 ml). Genotype 2015/TOINDVAR-5 showed highest total carotenoid (mg/100 g). Highest Ascorbic acid (mg/100 g) and titrable acidity (%) was observed in the genotype 2014/TODVAR-5 and 2015/TOCVAR-5, respectively. Genotype 2014/TODVAR-3 is the best among all genotypes in terms of yield and nutritional qualities followed by 2015/TOINDVAR-5 and H-86.
