Abstract

This study was carried out in the greenhouses of Konya Food and Agriculture University in order to determine the diversity of 192 melon lines in the S1 level and to progress the stage. Leaf shape in the study; it was determined as 66.1% deep five-lobed, 26.5% five-lobed, 7.2% entire, leaf color 25% dark green, 75% green. The development of leaf lobes was found 66.1% deep, 25% medium and 8.8% shallow. Leaf length; it was determined as 90% wide and 8% medium and leaf  width 63.02% medium, 31.25% wide and 5.7% narrow. As a result of selfing programs, fruit set occurred in 166 genotypes and the fruit shape was determined as 74.6% round, 18% elliptical and 3.01% flattened from the observations made on them. Fruit ground color; 6.02% dark green, 1.2% pale green, 20.4% light yellow, 35.5% orange, and 35.5% dark yellow; The secondary colors seen on the rind was determined as 2.4% black green, 4.2% light yellow, 39.15% green, and 39.7% dark green. The color of the rind pattern was 9.6% absent and 84.9% spotted; the fruit surface was determined as 1.8% veined, 59.6% superficially wrinkled, and 35.5% smooth. Fruit tip shape was determined as 63.8% round and 3.6% pointed. Secondary fruit skin color pattern was 9.6% absent and 84.9% spotted; fruit surface was determined as 1.8% wavy, 59.6% finely wrinkled, and 35.5% smooth. Fruit tip shape was determined as 63.8% round and 3.6% sharped. The data were analyzed by Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and factor analysis
