Tariq Mahmood, Syed Ijaz Hussain, Khalid Mahmood Khokhar, Hidayatullah and M. H. Bhatti    

Abstract: Twenty three exotic and one local cultivar of chillies were tested in an observational trial during 1998. Out of these 9 selected cultivars/lines PBC-581, PP 9656-15, BS-96, MI-2, PBC-534, Korean, PBC-386, PP 9656-6, and NARC-IV were further evaluated for yield, green and red fruit characteristic in a replicated trial during 2000. PBC-581 (17.33 t/ha) and PP9656-15 (16.04 t/ha) gave highest green fruit yield followed by BS-96 and MI-2 whereas, the local cultivar NARC IV produced the lowest yield (3.68 t/ha). Data regarding fruit size, color, position, bearing habit and pungency were also recorded. Maximum weight loss due to drying of red chilli fruit was observed in BS-96, whereas the lowest weight loss (68.72%) was recorded in cv. Korean.
