result of the experiment showed that, the earliest variety to attain days to 50% flowering was recorded on Melka zala varietie. The highest
fruit length, total dry weight content per plant, Fruit dry weight content , marketable and total yield (t/ha) was recorded from Variety
Melka zala while the highest fruit number and weight of seed per plant was from local varieties and Mareko fana, respectively. In
