ABSTRACT

The data obtained revealed that maximum plant height (422 cm), number of flowers (532), number of fruits per tree (940), fruit length (19.11 cm) and average fruit yield per tree (61.22 kg) were recorded in 1.5-1.5-0.75 NPK kg/plant. Maximum plant girth (78 cm) and maximum fruit weight (133.5 g) was found in 1.5-0.75-00 NPK kg/plant. Whereas, maximum number of inflorescence/ shoot (23.7) was recorded in 00-00-00 NPK kg/plant.
