Abstract

The study was carried out to evaluate the performance of nine cultivars of sweet pepper (Capsicum annum) under 50 per cent shade net house. The cultivar Bombi performed better in number of fruits per plant, average weight of fruits per plant and also in yield per square meter, while it required more number of days for first harvesting. However, cultivar Orbelle had highest height of plant, maximum leaf area, more number of harvesting while it required more number of days for first flowering and long duration of harvesting. Maximum length, breadth and volume of fruit were observed in cultivar Orbelle. Cultivar Bombi recorded maximum thickness of flesh pericarp, number of locules. Cultivar Royal wonder required minimum number of days for first flowering and first harvesting. Overall performance of cultivars Bombi, Orbelle, Indra, Shabanam, California wonder were found better.
