Abstract

Parthenocarpic fruiting behavior and fruit characteristics in different kakrol genotypes were investigated. Only 'Rangpuri' genotype produced parthenocarpic fruits naturally among the genotypes tested. High number of flowers per plant, less vegetative growth, seedlessness or less seed number, successive bearing of fruits, and longer harvesting period of 'Rangpuri' were highly promising. All the genotypes set 100% fruits when they were pollinated artificially. In open (natural) pollination, 'Rangpuri' produced 96% fruits, whereas the fruit set was less than 45% in other genotypes.
