Among the Vegetable crops, Chilli is the one of the important fruit or spices crop. An experiment was conducted at research field, Department of Horticulture, Allahabad, during the year 2014-2015, the experiment was laid out in a Randomized Block Design having ten treatments of “Evaluation of Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.) genotypes for growth yield and quality characters under Allahabad Agro Climatic Conditions.” Seventeen genotypes were used to study the genetic variability, heritability, genetic advance and correlation for growth and yield contributing characters in chilli at Eighteen different characters viz. plant height (cm), number of branches per plant, plant spread (E-W, N-S), days to flower anthesis, days to 50% flowering, days to first harvest, fruit length (cm), fruit diameter (mm), fruit weight (g), number of fruits plant-1, number of seeds fruit-1, seeds weight fruit-1, green fruit yield plant1, 100 seeds weight fruit yield hectare-1(q), ascorbic acid (mg/100g), fruit TSS (Brix0) were taken into consideration parameter studied, The result revealed that the genotype in terms of yield G12 is highest fruit yield per plant (1432.83 g), and fruit yield per hectare (36.42 q/ha).
Key words: Chilli, Capsicum annuum L., Genotypes, Growth and Yield.
