The present investigation a was conducted in the Department of Horticulture, Khalsa college, Guru Nanak Dev University in sub tropical climate of Amritsar during 2016-2017. The seedlings of papaya cv. Red Lady 786 were transplanted in the second week of August with a spacing of 1.6 x 1.6 m in net house and open field at the same time. The investigation was laid out in CRD with two treatment combinations replicated thrice. Results of the study revealed that the plants under net house showed an increase in fruit length (22.68 cm),breadth (11,93 cm), weight (874.32 g) and fruit volume (895.16 cc). Among bio- chemical characters maximum TSS (11.130 Brix), minimum peel weight (539.42g) and organoleptic rating(8.90) were also observed under net house conditions while maximum juice percentage (83.36 %), and pulp weight(184.13g) were registered in the plants of open field. Plants under net house showed an increase in the yield (45.39 kg/plant) as compared to the plants under open conditions.. Hence plants of papaya cv. Red Lady 786 can be successfully cultivated under protection of net house with good yield and fruit quality respectively.
