The consumption of berries on a global level, either from wild or cultivated species, is on an ascending trend, being linked to the fruits’ high nutraceutical qualities. Therefore, the demand to create robust cultivars adapted to the various environmental conditions worldwide is becoming higher. In order to reduce the time needed to obtain new cultivars, breeders have started to use more and more molecular methods and techniques. Molecular markers, such as RAPD, ISSR and SSR, specific DNA regions linked to genes responsible for various traits such as colour, shape, taste, firmness, tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses, are some of the molecular tools used in genotype-assisted breeding programs. The current review presents data related to the use of RAPD, ISSR and SSR molecular markers in Vaccinium species.
