The observations indicate that the genetic mechanisms underlying these traits were affected by salinity stress to increase the extent of dominance gene actions. It may be concluded that any breeding strategy should rely on hybrid development especially tailored to the target environment. In addition, the magnitude of heterosis for yield-associated and quality traits under both environmental conditions shows the potential for enhancing fruit yield and quality parameters through a systematic search for heterotic groups and evaluation of parents for their specific combining abilities.
