Abstract


Correlation and path analysis studies were carried out on 19 growth paremeters, viz., earliness, yield and quality traits in 57 genotypes of pumpkin (Cucurbita spp.). There was the highest significant positive association of fruit yield per vine with average fruit weight followed by vine length, number of leaves per vine, number of seeds per fruit, length of fruit, fruit cavity size, leaf size, hundred seed weight, fruit flesh thickness, number of primary branches per vine, total soluble solids, number of fruits per vine and circumference of fruit. But only number of fruits per vine and average fruit weight had high positive direct effect indicating their true positive and significant association with yield.
