Abstract:

Oriental pickling melon (Cucumis melo var. conomon) is one of the melon group vegetables of the Cucurbitaceae, with high potential as commercial short duration vegetable in South India. Twenty five RAPD primers were used which generated a total of 182 bands, out of which 107 bands were polymorphic (58%) revealing a substantial amount of genetic diversity within this species. Similarity values among all the accessions ranged from 0.948 to 0.619. According to the dendrogram formed, all the 15 pickling melon accessions were divided into three major clusters and four solitary clusters. Cluster 1 consisted of 2 genotypes, cluster 2 had four genotypes and cluster 3 had five genotypes. The genotype CMC GKVK12 appeared to be most diverse and genetically most similar genotypes were CMC GKVK14 and 15. The RAPD profile identified CMC GKVK12, CMC GKVK4, CMC GKVK11, and CMC GKVK13 genotypes as the most promising and also established their inter- relationship, which could be of great significance to choose them as parents in the future breeding programme.
