Nine genotypes from Vigna unguiculata ssp. unguiculata (grain type) as female parents and four genotypes from Vigna unguiculata ssp. sesquipedalis (vegetable type) as male parents were recombined through line × tester mating design. There was preponderance of SCA variance over the GCA variance for all the twelve characters studied, suggesting the predominant role of non-additive gene action. The parents belonging to Vigna unguiculata ssp. unguiculata namely GP1024, GP1238 and GP739 and (Vaijayanthi) and VS 33 of Vigna unguiculata ssp. sesquipedalis were identified as the best combiners for green pod yield. The hybrid combinations L9 × T4 (GP 1231 × VS 33), L4 × T3 (GP1024 × Vaijayanthi), L6 × T3 (GP 739 × Vaijayanthi) and L3 × T2 (GP 1126 × Lola) were worth pursuing further in view of their best performance and high sca effects for green pod yield. Among the testers, red poded varieties were alone identified as good combiners for green pod yield.
