Abstract: The present Investigation entitled, "Heterosis and combining ability studies in cucumber. (Cucumis sativus. Linn.)" was undertaken to study the magnitude of heterosis, combining ability, nature of gene action and heritabittty for twelve characters Including eariiness, fruiting and yield contributing characters, through 8 parent diallel analysis (excluding reciprocal) during 1983-84. A high magnitude of heterosis was observed for ail the characters studied. The highest percentage heterosis (75.91 )over mid parent was recorded for fruit yield per vine in combination P3 X P7 (BA X P). The same combination also exhibited the highest heterosis of 55.13, 43.93 and 37.45 percent for vine length, weight of fruit and length of fruit respectively. It also exhibited maximum heterosis over better parent for the characters fruit yield per vine (52.80%), weight of fruit (32.30%) and length of fruit (27.38%). However, the maximum heterosis over better parent was recorded in cross combination P2 X P5 (B X LC) (61.67%) for number of fruits per vine.
