Assessment of Tomato (Solanum lycopersicon L.) Hybrids for Fruit Quality and Yield Characters in the Hill Region of Utttarkhand

Shivani Dhyani, A.C. Misra, Priyanka Verma


Abstract: Twenty two hybrids of tomato were assessed for quality and yield characters at Vegetable Research Block College of Forestry, Ranichauri during summer- rainy season of 2014. In the analysis of variance, a high significant difference was found for almost all the quality characters suggesting a greater chance to explore variability mainly for the charcters viz. , dry matter content, ascorbic acid and total soluble solid. Hybrid Azad T-6 x NDT-7 has obtained highest mean for dry matter content (12.33 %) followed by ascorbic acid content (34.36 mg/100 g) and TSS (10.230 Brix) content. Maximum pH was found in hybrid CO-3 x Pusa Sadabahar (6.16) which was significantly superior to the other hybrids. Highest titratable acidity (7.03 %) was found in hybrid Punjab Chuhara x Pusa Uphar. Hybrids under study, shows the fruit juice content ranged from 49.22 to 76.72 % with highest percentage recorded by hybrid Utkal Kumari x Utkal Uphar (76.72 ml/100 g). Based on present investigation it may be suggested that hybrids viz. Utkal Urwasi x Gujrat Tomato-3, CO-3 x Pusa Sadabahar, Utkal Urwasi x Palam Pink, Azad T-6 x NDT-7 and Marglobe x Pusa Sadabahar were the promising hybrids for producing desirable hybrids in future breeding programmes.
