Abstract

The present investigation were carried out to know the mean performance of parents and hybrids for growth and yield attributing traits in ridge gourd at College of Horticulture, Venkataramannagudem, during 2018-19. Among the ten parents used for study VRG-11, Swarna Manjari, VRG-13 and VRG-24 were high yielding of 3.31, 2.61, 2.49 and 1.66 kg per vine, respectively. The hybrids VRG-24 x VRG-13, VRG-24 x VRG-16, Swarna Manjari x Arka Prasan and Swarna Manjari x VRG-16 recorded the highest yield of 4.83, 4.25, 3.80 and 3.78 kg per vine, respectively in ridge gourd. The hybrid VRG-11 x Swarna Manjari was most promising for the trait which contribute to the highest yield per vine that is days to first female flower appearance. Based on their mean performance parents can be used for further breeding programmes and hybrids could be exploited for cultivation.
