Variability of fruit traits in Macedonian embroidered pepper genotypes
Keywords:Embroidered pepper, fruit traits, variability
Embroidered pepper is a unique type of Macedonian pepper with specific quantitative fruit characteristics. Until a few years ago, this type of pepper was not studied at all, developed, and described in detail, so still, there is a lack of information on this type of pepper. The aim of this study was to assess the performance of ten embroidered pepper genotypes in three environments. In the evaluation process, seven morphological traits of the fruits were characterized (fruit length, fruit width, fruit weight, fruit pedicel length, fruit wall thickness, number of locules, and number of fruits. Evaluation results assess the effects of the genotype, environment, and their interaction on the expression of embroidered peppers fruit characteristics. Considering the data from all analyzed traits lowest values were observed in environment 2 (v. Stajkovtci). All the genotypes performed the best results for all traits in environment 3 (Radovish), followed by environment 1 (v. Gluvo). There is still a need for multiple year testing for the best performing genotypes in a specific environment to be recommended to the farmers.
