Abstract

Currants cultivation has increased its popularity in Turkey due to the use of more currants in Turkish cuisine. To provide farmers with well adapted currants cultivars, some currants cultivars have been planted in various geographical regions of Turkey. In this study, genetic diversity among some of these currants cultivars has been analyzed using AFLP markers. Our results indicated that red and black currants genotypes are genetically distinct, sharing very small proportion of AFLP markers. Selected currants genotypes from Turkey shared all AFLP markers suggesting that they might be the same genotype.
