Comparative performance of dual purpose tomato hybrids for yield and processing traits

Author(s): P Arun Kumar, K Ravinder Reddy, RVSK Reddy, Someswar Rao Pandravada and P Saidaiah
Abstract: The experiment was conducted to evaluate the comparative performance of forty four tomato hybrids at Vegetable Research Station, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, Telangana during 2015-16. There was significant differences among the characters studied. Crosses EC-620360 × Pusa Ruby and EC-619982 × EC-620557 exhibited significant values for fruit yield per plant (3.13 kg, 3.04 kg), pericarp thickness (4.24 mm, 4.73 mm), total soluble solids (5.370Brix, 4.92 0Brix), fruit pH (4.39, 4.94), titrable acidity (0.47%, 0.39%), ascorbic acid content (27.21 mg/100g, 22.69 mg/100g), total sugars (4.12%, 4.30%), reducing sugars (2.90%, 3.58%) and lycopene content (6.63 mg/100g, 8.60 mg/100g) are suitable for processing purpose. EC-608415 × Arka Abha with higher fruit yield per plant (3.29 kg), pericarp thickness (4.03 mm), total soluble solids (4.71 0Brix), fruit pH (4.87), titrable acidity (0.42%), ascorbic acid content (21.42 mg/100g), total sugars (3.62%), reducing sugars (2.97%) and lycopene content (6.32 mg/100g) is suitable for culinary purpose and EC-608415 × Punjab Chhuhara with significant fruit yield per plant (3.04 kg), pericarp thickness (4.21 mm), total soluble solids (4.59 0Brix), fruit pH (4.81), titrable acidity (0.45%), ascorbic acid content (22.38 mg/100g), total sugars (3.77%), reducing sugars (3.08%) and lycopene content (6.83 mg/100g) is suitable for dual purpose (culinary and processing). The potential of these hybrids to be further tested under the other climatic conditions to elicit substantial conclusions.
