Evaluation of 29 F1 hybrids indicated manifestation of pronounced hybrid vigour for fruit yield and most of the yield components in them. It

established brinjal as a prominent candidate for commercial exploitation of heterosis provided consumer acceptable character constellation

are framed in the hybrids. Selection of hybrids should be based on both manifestations of heterosis and per se performance of the hybrids

as both all the time did not match. Outstanding hybrids emerged from the study were BCB 75 × BCB 45, BCB 38 × BCB 1 and BCB 23 ×

BCB 42. This report suggested the possibility for getting commercial exploitable heterosis in the hybrids with the involvement of locally

adapted cultivars as parental lines.
