Yield and fruit quality of six lines of Physalis (K1-87 and K2-87 lines from Physalis ixocarpa Brot. and No.185, No.285, AH-84 and 85-B2 lines from Physalis peruviana L.) were investigated in Çukurova plain conditions.

All lines were tested in greenhouse, low tunnel and field conditions. Yield and some fruit characteristics (fruit diameter, fruit length, average fruit weight, total soluble solid content, ascorbic acid content, pH and titratable acidity) were determined.

According to the results, there were no differences either in yield or in fruit quality between the lines which belonged to P. ixocarpa Brot. The yield obtained from the field conditions (2764 g/m2) was higher than in the low tunnel (1903 g/m2) and the greenhouse (1957 g/m2) in the first year. In the second year, the low tunnel yield (2674 g/m2) was significantly higher than the open field yield (1326 g/m2).

There were no differences between the lines which belonged to P.peruviana L. in the first year for total yield. However, AH-84 (449 g/m2) and 85-B2 (424 g/m2) lines gave higher yields than No. 185 (281 g/m2) and No.285 (272 g/m2) lines in the second year. The low tunnel conditions (425 g/m2) gave better yields than open field conditions (288 g/m2). There were no differences in fruit quality between all lines which belonged to P. peruviana L.
