The present experiment were carried out at the research field of Horticultural Research Farm, Andro, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, which is 27km from CAU during Oct,2018-19,Mar. The experimental site is located at latitude of 24º45.89’ N and longitude of 94º03.46’ S, at an altitude of 880m above mean sea level. The experiment was conducted to chalked out the best mulching and variety and their combined effect on plant growth and yield. Mulching consist of Straw mulch (M2), Black polyethylene (M1), Saw dust (M3) and cultivars Sweet Charlie (V1) and Chandler (V1). The total treatment consist of 8. It was two factorial experiment comprising 8 treatment combinations with three replications. Hence the design of the experiment was Factorial Randomized Block Design and total number of seedlings used were 480 with 20 seedlings per treatment per replication. From the data recorded after analysed, it was noticed that the parameters showed significant variations because of effect of two factors. With regard to mulching applied, highest plant height(21.84cm), Crown spread(29.85cm), number of leaves per plant(17.07), leaf area (77.38cm2), single fruit weight (9.84g) and yield(2.51t/ha) were observed in Straw mulch. As for cultivar is concerned Chandler (V2) reported maximum in  the parameters mentioned plant height (20.20cm), crown spread (28.08cm), number of leaves per plant (15.90), leaf area (73.45cm2), single fruit weight (8.06g), yield (1.84t/ha) and Sweet Charlie (V1) observed minimum value. For the combined influence of two factors mentioned earlier Straw Mulch (M2) with Chandler (V2) i.e M2V2 observed maximum in the given parameters while M0V1 (Control x Sweet Charlie) observed minimum value. Therefore it can be inferred that Straw mulch (M2) when mulch in Chandler (V2) gave better result for the growth and yield parameters.
