genetic studies have been mainly focused on interspecific diversity within the genus Cucurbita or genetic diversity among C. pepo subspecies with an emphasis on other cultivar groups ( Ferriol et al., 2003 ; Formisano et al., 2012 ; Gong et al., 2008

polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to estimate genetic diversity among watermelon cultivars ( Lee et al., 1996 ; Solmaz et al., 2010 ) and to construct an initial genetic linkage map ( Hashizume et al., 1993 ). Levi et al. (2005) identified RAPD
