Abstract: 

In order to study the genetic relations among 25 Iranian’ Cucumis melo var. flexusus genotypes, 28 quantitative and qualitative traits were evaluated in Department of Horticultural Science, Tehran University, in 2006. Simple correlation analysis of traits showed significant correlations between important traits that could mention positive correlation between seed, fruit and leaf color and also negative correlation between fruit shape and fruit color, rib number on fruit skin and total soluble solids and positive correlation with presence of hair on fruit skin. Factor analysis showed that in the three first principle factors length, width and weight of seed, fruit weight, rib number, fruit shape, fruit flesh color and TSS and also in forth factor bush traits had more effective portion. Cluster analysis by using principle factors, based on seed, fruit, bush and leaf traits placed genotypes in different subgroups. One genotype that had strip lines on fruit skin and another genotype with different carpel number classified separately. According to the results high variation was observed among quantitative and qualitative traits that showed high genetic variation among genotypes.
