RAPD and PCR-RFLP analyses were conducted to establish the phylogenetic relationships among collected accessions of shallot (Allium cepa var. ascalonicum and Allium x wakegi, and to assess the origin of A. x wakegi. Twenty out of 100 primers were amplified with 112 scorable bands for cluster analysis. Two main cluster groups consisting of one group for shallot and another group for A. x wakegi were clearly separated.
