The study was conducted at Main Garden, Department of Horticulture, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola (M.S.), India during summer 2014. The experimental trial consist of material viz, five genetically diverse parents i.e., P1(Samrat), P2(Arka Bahar), P3(PSPL), P4(DBG-5) and P5(Pusa Samrudhi); their six F1S’ viz., cross C1(P1XP4), C2(P1XP5), C3(P2XP4), C4(P2XP5), C5(P3XP4) and C6(P3XP5); were evaluated in randomized three replications. Estimation of heritability and genetic advance in the studied crosses recorded nonadditive gene effect for vine length, internodal distance, yield per vine, yield per ha, whereas, number of fruits per plant and average fruit wt., were also found under the additive genic control. Both additive as well as non-additive gene effects were found operating in equal proportion for characters viz., days to first female flower, and days to first fruit harvest.
