Exploitation of heterosis in papaya

Exploitation of heterosis in papaya

Indian Journal of Horticulture 41(1/2): 40-46

Yield, 2 vegetative and 5 yield-related characters were investigated in crosses involving 5 Carica papaya varieties. Significant heterosis was observed for all characters. Heterosis for yield reached 111.4% relative to the better parent in some combinations.
