Abstract

Study the yield of ten new teasle gourd genotypes grown on different trellis with a view to identify a high yielding variety and an acceptable trellis suitable for easy hand pollination. Among ten genotypes developed through inter and intra sexual crosses, the genotypes TG 920722 were found superior and produced significantly higher yield (7.47 kg/plant) than all other genotypes. Different types of trellis e.g. Upright konchee trellis, Flat bamboo trellis and Vertical rope net trellis significantly influenced the yield attributes of teasle gourd genotypes. The vertical rope net trellis gave better results than all other trellis in respect of success of fruit setting, fruit length, fruit diameter, individual fruit weight, number of fruit per plant and fruit yield per plant.
