Abstract: A set of 40 genotypes including seven females, four males, their 28 single F1 hybrids and one standard check (Abhinav) were sown at Vegetable Research Scheme, R.H.R.S., NAU, Navsari. During to study the heterosis in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) for ten characters following Line Tester mating design. High heterosis recorded by cross JTL-12-12× JT-3 was 295.83%, followed by NTL-1 × AT-3 (273.39%), JTL-12-12 × GT-2 (196.52%), JTL-12-12 × AT-3 (177.53%), NTL-1 × JT-3 (160.31%), JTL-12-10 × GT-2 (156.80%) and JTL-12-11 × GT-2 (155.55%) in positive direction. The crosses of either average × good, poor × good as well as average × poor yielding parents showed higher standard heterosis than good × good yielding parents. Thus, further breeding programme exploitation of heterosis is feasible.
