The seeds of sixty hybrids along with ten parents generated during Rabi, 2009 were evaluated for heat tolerance and earliness during Summer, 2010 in a Randomized Block Design along with national check PH-6 in three replications for C.G. plains. Heterosis analysis was carried out for days to 50% flowering, days to first picking, plant height, number of primary branches per plant, average fruit length (cm), average fruit girth (cm), average fruit weight (g), total number of fruits per plant, number of fruits per plant per picking, marketable fruit yield per plant, total fruit yield per plant and total soluble solids (%). Highest standard heterosis was shown by IBWL x PPC (46.86%) followed by GL x PPL (46.13%), MK x IBWL (42.44%), PPC x WBPF (41.62%) and WBPF x PR (40.96%) for total fruit yield per plant.
