Morphological characterization is the most accessible and used method to quantify the genetic diversity of the available germplasm. The multivariate statistical method is highly important for this purpose. This study aimed to characterize parents and hybrids of Passiflora according to morphoagronomic descriptors and estimate the genetic divergence between them based on the joint analysis of qualitative and quantitative variables using the Ward-modified location model (MLM) procedure. One hundred and thirty-eight individuals were assessed (10 P. edulis, 10 P.
