The genetic diversity among Cucumis sativus var. sativus (commercial cucumber) (1), var. anatolicus (2), var. cilicicus (3), var. europaeus (4), var. falcatus (5), var. indo-europaeus (6), var. irano-turanieus (7), var. izmir (8), var. sikkimensis (9), var. squamosus (10), var. testudaceus (11), var. tuberculatus (12), var. vulgatus (13), and var. hardwickii (14) were assessed using 7 morphological characteristics and 9 isozyme loci to determine their potential use for plant improvement. Results of morphological comparison below. Isozyme and morphological analysis did not result in similar dendrogram depictions. Varieties 13 and 3 might have potential in plant improvement based on yield performance.
