A field experiment was conducted during early Summer, 2017 in Randomized Block Design with three replications at College of Horticulture, SKLTSHU, Telangana. Seven diverse lines of tomato were crossed with three testers in line x tester mating design. The resultant 21 hybrids were evaluated for twenty yield and yield contributing traits in tomato. The experiment results revealed that hybrid EC 620494 x ArkaVikas performed best for characters viz., fruit yield per plant (3.13 kg), average fruit weight (58.80 g), days to first flowering (30.67) and days to last harvest (131.06) when compared to all other hybrids. Besides, other hybrid EC 620494 x Pusa Ruby also showed superior performance for fruit yield per plant (3.10kg), average fruit weight (57.41 g), yield per hectare(111.05 t/ha), plant height (92.73 cm), days to last harvest (131.13) and fruit pH (4.03).

Keywords: Tomato, Mean performance, Hybrid vigour, Heterosis.
