Abstract:
Planting dates of Underutilized medicinal vegetable Karchikai (<em>Momordica cymbalaria</em>) is an important factor influencing growth and productivity. An experiment on Karchikai was conducted at KRCCH, Arabhavi, and Belgaum district during 2017 to determine the best date of planting for obtaining higher yield. Experiment comprises of four dates of sowing <em>viz</em>. June 1<sup>st</sup>, July 1<sup>st</sup>, August 1<sup>st</sup> and September 1<sup>st</sup> of 2017. The parameters were days to sprouting, sprouting percentage, days to flowering, number of fruits per vine, vine length (cm), average fruit weight (g), number of fruits per vine, yield per plant and yield per hectare. The results were significantly differed at 5% level of probability. The study showed that tubers planting on June 1<sup>st</sup> speed up days to sprouting, Sprouting percentage, flowering, vine length (cm), average fruit weight (gm) yield per plant (kg). The yield results indicated that June 1<sup>st</sup> is the best date of planting for higher production and also early planting give better yield performance than late planting.
