Abstract

A field experiment was carried out in the Vegetable Experimental Field, SKUAST-K, Shalimar, Srinagar during kharif-2018 with twenty seven genotypes of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.). They were evaluated to estimate the performance of genotypes on various traits like plant height, plant spread, the number of primary branches per plant, days to first flowering, days to 50% flowering, fruit length, fruit diameter, the number of fruits per plant, fruit yield per plot. Analysis of Variance revealed significant differences among the genotypes for all the characters studied. Days to first flowering and days to first fruit set was early in the Jawahar-99, Shalimar Tomato Hybrid-1, Roma, VRT-13, Kashi Hemanth and Kashi Anupam genotypes. Maximum fruit length and diameter was exhibited by Roma, 2016/TODVAR-3, 2016/TODVAR-11. The highest fruit yield per plot was exhibited by Kashi Sharad and Sel-07.
