Performance of bitter gourd (Momordica charantia L.) hybrids for growth, yield and quality under Prayagraj agro climatic conditions

Author(s): Krishanveer Singh, Dr. Vijay Bahadur and Devanshi Tiwari
Abstract: Field experiment was conducted during February to May, 2023 at the Horticulture Research Farm, Department of Horticulture, Naini Agricultural Institute, Sam Higginbottom University of Agriculture, Technology & Sciences, Prayagraj to study Performance of Bitter Gourd (Momordica charantia L.) Hybrids for Growth, Yield and Quality Under Prayagraj Agro Climatic Conditions ". The experiment was be laid out in randomized block design (RBD) with three replications of 10 varieties. The allocation of treatments of the individual plots using random number in each replication. Based on the results obtained, to find out the most promising variety of hybrid bitter gourd for better growth, high yield and quality. The results revealed that H5 (SW 826) performed the best in term in vine length (145.04 cm), no. of branches (6.06), no. of leaves (60.8), days to first male flower appearance (36.4), days to first female flower appearance (40.13), fruit number per plant (13), fruit weight (101.8 kg), fruit length (13.93 cm), fruit girth (17.06 cm), fruit yield per plant (3.87 kg) and fruit yield per hectare (20.31 t/ha) and quality parameters viz., total soluble solids (5.53*Brix) content and vitamin c – content (84.4 mg/100g) and highest benefit cost ratio was observed in H5 (4.47). Threrefore the hybrid H5 (SW 826) is the best when compared to other hybrids.
