Author(s): K Jayalakshmi and Dr. S Praneetha
Abstract: Fifty local types of brinjal were collected from several districts of Tamil Nadu and various other sources were evaluated during September 2016 and February 2017 to assess the mean performance for yield and its quality characters. Among the genotypes, Sevanthampatty Local (123.23 cm) recorded highest plant height. Pachai Round (8.80) had the highest number of branches per plant. Karur Local and Udumalai Samba recorded earliest to first flowering (47.65 and 47.73 days), 50% flowering (55.20 and 55.31 days) and days to first harvest (66.81 and 67.03 days). Highest marketable yield per plant was recorded by Karur local (2.97 kg) followed by Udumalai Samba (2.86 kg). Similarly Karur Local (19.82 per cent) had lowest fruit borer infestation followed by Udumalai Samba (20.57 per cent).
