Author(s): M. Tirumalesh and J. Mandal
Abstract: Twenty seven bottle gourd genotypes were assessed with the objective to find out promising genotype(s) for growing in postrainy season under red and laterite zone of West Bengal. Among the genotypes significant variations were noted for all the studied traits. Genotypes APBG-3 and UKBG-1 were early to first fruit harvest. Average fruit number plant-1 and average fruit weight was noted 3.4 and 775.8 g respectively. Genotypes Kundan, Gola Lattoo, UKBG-1, PSPL and Aditi exhibited higher fruit yield plant-1 which varied from 3.6 to 4.0 kg, can be recommended for growing in red and laterite zone of West Bengal.
