Abstract:
Thirty six bird’s eye chilli accessions (<em>Capsicum frutescence </em>L.) were evaluated at College of Horticulture, Mudigere (Karnataka), India, to select the promising accessions for qualitative traits <em>viz. </em>capsaicin, vitamin C, oleoresin and capsanthin contents. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among the accessions for all the characters. Among thirty six accessions, maximum capsaicin content was recorded in Acc.15 (1.86 %), whereas the least capsaicin content was recorded in Acc.20 (0.65 %). Maximum ascorbic acid and oleoresin contents were recorded in Acc.30 (159.05 mg/100g and 11.36 % respectively), while minimum ascorbic acid content was recorded in Acc.10 (53.03 mg) and oleoresin content in Acc.14 (0.65 %). Accession.27 reported maximum capsanthin content of 436.05 colour units, while the minimum was registered in Acc.20 (251.75 colour units).
