Abstract:
A field experiment was conducted on 21 hybrids resulted from crossing seven lines of tomato with three testers in line x tester mating design and evaluated for fifteen yield and yield contributing traits during early Summer, 2019 in Randomized Block Design with three replications at College of Horticulture, Sri KondaLaxman Telangana State Horticultural University, Telangana. The experiment revealed that hybrid EC 620452 x Money Maker performed best for characters viz., plant height, days to last harvest, fruit length, average fruit weight, fruit yield per plant, TSS and lycopene content, when compared to all other hybrids. Besides, other hybrid EC 620441 x AVTO 1219 also showed best performance for characters viz., number of flowers per cluster, days to last harvest, number of marketable fruits per plant, fruit length, fruit width and lycopene content. The superior performing hybrids may be released for commercial cultivation after multilocational evaluation for yield exploitation.
