Abstract:

A field experiment was conducted at College of Horticulture, Sirsi during late kharif 2017 to study the nature and magnitude of genetic diversity of 40 culinary melon genotypes. Based on D2 analysis, the genotypes were grouped into seven different clusters, where the cluster I possessed maximum number (28) of genotypes followed by the cluster II (5), V (3), and rest are solitary. The maximum inter-cluster distance was observed between the cluster IV and cluster VI (D2=645.83) followed by cluster III and cluster VI (D2=641.23) and minimum in cluster III and IV (D2=34.81). The Number of female flowers (25.13%) contributed maximum towards expression of genetic divergence followed by seed weight per fruit (17.95%) and least by number of nodes at 30 DAS (0.13%). Considering cluster mean, the genotypes of cluster IV could be selected for yield per plant and average fruit weight.
