The aim of the study, determining of grafting could improve the agronomic behaviour of pepper (Capsicum annuum L.), an open field experiment was carried out to determine growth, yield and fruit quality of long type pepper hybrid cultivar (ʻEfilʼ). As a scion plant material was used ʻEfil F1ʼ and rootstock ʻGuclu F1ʼ. ʻEfil/Efilʼ (ʻScion/Scionʼ), ʻEfil/Gucluʼ (ʻScion/Rootstockʼ) and non-grafted ʻEfilʼ (ʻSiconʼ) were used as the grafted combination. According to experiment, grafted plants were taller than control (non-grafted). Total yield, fruit number, fruit flesh firmness, fruit weight and stem diameter were influenced by rootstock and grafting. Grafted pepper produced 16% more yield than control plants for 'Efil/Guclu'. A similar trend was also observed on 'Efil/Efil'. The lowest yield recorded on ʻEfilʼ (nongrafted).
