The present investigation was carried out to study the magnitude of heterosis in 30 hybrids obtained by crossing six parents in full diallel pattern at the Department of Vegetable Science during 2015-16. Results indicated that more hybrid vigour for total fruit yield and most of the yield related components in bell pepper. The crosses viz. Yolo Wonder × California Wonder and California Wonder × Yolo Wonder showed positive significant heterosis over commercial check Indra for yield per plant. The cross exhibited significant heterosis over commercial check was Arka mohini × Yelavigi Collection for plant height and Californi Wonder × Arka Mohini for number of branches per plant; Solan Bharpur × Tarihal Local for number of fruits per plant; Yolo Wonder × California Wonder for average fruit weight.
Key words :
