The present investigation entitled, Evaluation of Chilli F1 hybrid cultivars (capsicum annum L.) chilli F1 hybrid suitable for green and dry chilli market under zone Southern zone of Karnataka. Eight chilli F1 hybrid cultivar where evaluated during the year kharif 2021 at Agricultural & Horticultural Research Station, Katahalagere (Davangere district). The Chilli F1 hybrid cultivar were collected from I I H R. Bangaloru eight cultivars. viz. Arka Yashasvi, Ark Saanvi, Arka Gagan,.Arka Tejasvi, Arka Tanvi, H-23, H-25 and local check (Arka Harith).The results of the eight treatments revealed that all the hybrid cultivars are showed on par variation with respect to plant growth, yield and yield traits. Arka Sanvi was found superior plant height (66.83 Cm) the highest plant canopy direction was recorded,(41.75/41.44 Cm NS and EW respectively).The highest number branches (6.79 Nos) fruit length (10.5 cm) and diameter (0.516 cm) and twenty fruits weight (162.33 g) were recorded in the same F1 hybrid cultivar. Individual treatment fruit yield per plant green / red chilli was recorded in the same F1hybrid cultivar (0.715/0.217 kg) meanwhile observed fruit yield /plot was also recorded in higher (11.964 /3.44 kg) and fruit yield per acre was recorded in (2991.083/3.5566 kg/acre) respectively. And overall marketing acceptance F1 Hybrid Arka Saanavi cultivar is also superior (4.5 and above /5.00 points). Plants medium tall & spreading, canopy, firm fruit, medium pungent, green and turn red on maturity, smooth turn to medium wrinkled yield potential 30-35q dry chilli/ acre, recommended for Southern zone of Karnataka.
