Different melon (Cucumis melo), watermelon (Citrillus lanatus), pepper (Capsicum annuum) and Mathiola incana varieties, and a watermelon hybrid with its parent lines were involved in our study. Bulk and single seed samples were investigated. The spectra of the investigated melon bulk seed samples were recorded on a Spectralyzer 1025 scanning type spectrometer in the wavelength region of 1000-2500 nm. Single seed measurements were done by a METRINIR 10-17 scanning type spectrometer. For data evaluation, the Polar Qualification System (PQS) using automatic wavelength range optimization was used. The NIR technique proved to be useful for distinction and identification of different horticultural plants from bulk and single seed samples.
