Madhuca longifolia commonly known as mahua belongs to family Sapotaceae. It is an important non-timber economic tree which has two varieties namely Madhuca longifolia var. latifolia and Madhuca longifolia var. longifoliae. These two varieties show remarkably similarity in their economic use and phytochemistry. Mahua tree grows wildly and is also cultivated in norther and southern part of India. The two varieties differ morphologically with respect to the leaf hence the names. RAPD profile was optimized to study the genetic variability in mahua using randomly selected 10 genotypes. The profile was developed using 10 decamer primers. The dendrogram was constructed using UPGMA algorithm. Our results highlighted the use of RAPD markers to gain simple and lucid information about the genetic similarities or dissimilarities in the two varieties that might not be so easily evident from other commonly used techniques.
