Abstract

Eight pea cultivars namely, lincoln, napolitano, piccolo, P. alberto, caravella, rondo, S. gennaro and climax were evaluated for their performance with regard to seed yield. Cultivar rando produced the maximum number of pods (18.8), while caravella produced the minimum number of pods (8.8) per plant. The maximum 1000-seed weight was recorded in S. gennaro (319.0 g) followed by caravella (286.3 g), piccolo (274.3 g) and napolitano (271.7 g). The seed yield in various cultivars ranged from 1.43 to 1.91.
