Studies on the extent of heterosis for the quantitative characters in kharif season bottle gourd [Lagenaria siceraria (Molina) standl.]

Author(s): Sudhanshu Mishra, Satrughan Pandey, Navin Kumar, VP Pandey and T Singh
Abstract: Observations were recorded on parents and F1 for 12 traits viz. days to first male and female flower anthesis, node number to first male and female flower appearance, days to first fruit harvest, vine length (m), number of primary branches per plant, fruit length (cm), fruit circumference (cm), fruit weight (kg), number of fruits and fruit yield per plant (kg). Heterosis for fruit yield per plant ranged from -42.02% to 47.92% over better parent and -44.85% to 54.74% over standard parent Pusa Naveen. Fruit yield, number of fruits per plant, vine length and primary branches per plant observed as top heterotic trait. P7 x P9 (54.74%), P1 x P7 (47.43%) and P3 x P7 (46.55%) were the top heterotic F1 for fruit yield and also possessed high estimates of significant heterosis for number of fruits per plant along with attractive fruit shape.
