MORPHO-PHYSIOLOGICAL CHARACTERIZATION OF TWELVE EXOTIC CHERRY TOMATO LINES
An experiment was accomplished in the Horticulture farm of Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University during the period of November 2016 to March 2017. Twelve cherry tomato lines, viz., L1 = Jhumka-red, L2 = Sweetie, L3 = Cherry Sweet red, L4 = SAU Olive cherry, L5 = Chinese, L6 = Jhumka-yellow, L7 = Clamentine, L8 = Golden juble, L9 = SAU Black cherry, L10 = Whitest, L11 = Orange, L12 = JP-13 were used to investigate the dissimilar characteristics of different cherry tomato line laid out in a Randomized Complete Block Design with three replications. The lines that were used in this experiment generally showed four colors, five shapes, two setting types and four fruit sizes. The cherry tomato lines have been characterized on the basis of variation using visual observation following UPOV authorized guidelines which were classified into different groups that may be used for further research and development of this vegetable.
