Abstract:

CTH 1 Tomato is a F1 hybrid of LE 1226 X LE 1249. It was developed by the Department of Vegetable Science, Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore. Fruits are flat round with green shoulder during ripening and turned into red colour at full ripening with an average fruit weight of 75.40g. The fruits of the hybrid could be harvested for 20-22 times in five months duration. Due to the long harvesting period, the single plant yields 36 fruits with an average yield of 2.94 kg/plant. The hybrid culture CTH 1 proved its superiority with an yield of 92.3 t/ha which was 27.31 per cent increase over the check TNAU tomato hybrid CO 3 and 40.91 per cent over another check Lakshmi (C) respectively. It showed consistent performance in Multi location Trials (14 Nos) and Adaptive Research Trials (107 Nos). The plants can be grown at a spacing of 60 x 45 cm under irrigated condition. The plants should be staked. It can be successfully grown in June -July and Dec - Jan under irrigated conditions. This hybrid is having better shelf life compared with other commercial hybrids. This hybrid can be recommended for cultivation in the districts of Coimbatore, Cuddalore, Dharamapuri, Dindigul, Erode, Kancheepuram, Karur, Krishnagiri, Madurai, Namakkal, Pudukottai, Ramanathapuram, Salem, Thanjavur, Thirunelveli, Thiruvannamalai, Theni, Thoothukudi, Tirupur, Trichy, Vellore and Villupuram of Tamil Nadu.
