Abstract
Eight varieties of chilli (Capsicum annum L.) were evaluated over 3 years. The cultivar G 4 was found to be the earliest taking 103.13 days to first harvest. Maximum number of fruits/plant (243.47) was recorded in X 235, whereas CO 2 manifested the maximum weight of 10 green fruits (45.02g). The highest green fruit yield of 146.40 q/ha was produced by X 235 followed by G 4 (135.13 q/ha). The higher yield was the result of higher number of fruits/plant and earliness. Fruit number and weight were not having strong compensatory interactions in influencing the fruit yield. The best performing varieties X 235 and G 4 were advocated for commercial cultivation.
