Abstract

Seventeen cucumber hybrids were evaluated for growth, yield and yield attributing characters under naturally ventilated polyhouse in Konkan agroclimatic condition. The study revealed that the hybrid US-800 recorded highest main vine length (7.30 m), hybrid Malini recorded highest number of branches per vine (14), hybrid Daynasty recorded lowest days to appearance of first male flower (35 days), hybrid Swati recorded lowest days to appearance of first female flower (36 days), hybrid NCH-160 recorded lowest nodal position of first male flower (1.1 node), hybrid Sahyadri recorded lowest nodal position of first female flower (3.80 node), hybrid Shighra recorded lowest days to first harvest (51.10 days), hybrid Malini recorded highest days to last harvest (87.80 days), hybrid Shighra recorded highest harvest span (35.90 days), hybrid Daynasty recorded highest number of harvesting (14.40 days), hybrid Mahabharat recorded highest length of fruit (19.10 cm), hybrid Malini recorded highest diameter of fruit (4.36 cm), highest fruit weight (241.18 g), highest number of fruit per vine (23.70), highest fruit yield per vine (4.92 kg) and highest yield per hectare (716.46 qt). Hybrid Sahyadri recorded highest leaf area (422.00 cm2). Hybrid Malini was found superior based on the overall performance of different cucumber hybrids for growth, yield and yield attributing character for cultivation of cucumber under naturally ventilated polyhouse.
