Abstract

Amasya is a native and standard cultivar for commercial apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) production in Turkey. The aim of this study was to determine the genetic variability among some accessions of Amasya apple cultivar. Ten Amasya accessions, all selected from agronomic evaluations, and Granny Smith (as control) were analyzed by RAPD marker technique. Of the total 441 RAPD loci that were amplified by 38 random primers, 180 were polymorphic with 39.98% diversity. Cluster analysis divided the apples into two major clusters; the first cluster involved 10 accessions of Amasya, and the second cluster comprised Granny Smith.
