The genetic analysis of diallel tables 6×6 was carried out for the
following characters pf hot pepper: yield, number and weight of fruit,
number of days from sowing to the beginning of flowering and ripening. The
effects of additive and non-additive gene action proved to be significant
in the inheritance of all tested features. Estimations of general and
specific combining abilities were made, as well as of the maternal effects
of the initial lines. Moreover, in the case of the adequate
additive-dominance model, the degrees of dominance and the heritability
coefficients were calculated.
