The genus Crataegus azarolus L. is well distributed in Iran as a wild plant, with numerous, inherently variable population and genotypes. In flora of Iran this species is divides into tree independent species, while Christensen believed all of them are varieties of C. azarolus. RAPD markers were used to study 12 hawthorn genotypes belonging to Crataegus aronia, C. pontica, C. assadi and C. zarrei. The four RAPD primers produced polymorphic bands. A phenogram based on average linkage method included four major groups. The lowest genetic variability was observed within C. azarolus var. aronia genotypes. The study demonstrated that RAPD analysis is efficient for genotyping wild-grown hawthorns.
