RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA) analysis was employed in order to detect genetic relationship in 45 balsam pear (Momordica charantia L.) cultivars. Based on UPGMA cluster analysis, a DNA molecular dendrogram was established. The results showed that: 45 balsam pear cultivars were divided into striped protuberance and granular (thorny) protuberance two types. Striped protuberance type was included two groups which respectively came from Southeastern Asia and China. Granular protuberance type was included two groups too which respectively came from Hongkong (China) and China mainland, which showing region difference. Besides, cultivars which be close on genetic relationship could be gathered.
