The main goal of the present study was to be established the responses in seed formation and seed production in several genotypes of cape gooseberry (Physalis peruviana L.) with a target to predict the seed yield and its realization. The experiments were carried out in Agricultural University of Plovdiv, Bulgaria with six genotypes of the different origin. The number of seed per fruit, the percentage of normally developed seed, the weight of 1000 seeds, germination energy, germination, mean germination time, uniformity of germination, length of embryo root and hypocotyls and fresh weight and deviation in seedlings were established. The weight of seeds per kilogram fruit, the yield of fruit and seed also have been determinated. Significant variation in the numbers of seed per fruit was observed. High germination was an account of each genotype. The differences in seed production and sowing quality between genotypes were registered. These results can be applied for the prediction of seed productivity and also in the determination of the price of seed depending on the genotyping insemination characteristics.
