Performance of Bottle Gourd Lines in Bangladesh Condition

Eleven advanced lines of bottle gourd were evaluated at the Olericulture Division, Bangladesh Research Center, Gazipur, Bangladesh during 2015-2016 for selecting the superior lines in terms of higher yield and better quality. The lines varied significantly (P<0.05) for fruit number per plant, average fruit weight, fruit yield per plant ,plant, fruit length ,length, fruit diameter and diameter and fruit yield (t/ha). The line LS151C produced the earliest fruiting (71.67 days) and maximum number of fruits per plant (12.25). The range of fruit length was 23.00 cm (LS146A1) to 43.67 cm (BARI Lau 4), while fruit diameter ranged from 10.87 cm (LS148-5) to 15.00 cm (LS139A5). The maximum fruit yield (t/ha) was recorded in the line LS151C (48.00 t/ha) which was statistically similar with LS146A1 (46.34 t/ha), LS139A1 (46.00 t/ha), LS137A5 (45.08 t/ha), LS133A4 (41.72 t/ha). Considering earliness, high yield, fruit color and acceptable fruit size and shape, out of 11, the four advanced lines, i.e., LS151C, LS146A1, LS139A1, LS137A5 were found promising.
