This study was done in order to investigate fruit characteristics of hazelnuts grown at Lake Van around and Hizan county. 26 types were evaluated. The types had nut weight between 1.97 g and 3.23 g, kernel weight between 0.72 g and 1.27 g, kernel ratio between 30.92 % and 49.35 %, shell thickness between 0.78 mm and 1.47 mm, fruit number between 310 and 508 per kg, fruit length between 17.68 mm and 26.17 mm, fruit width between 16.84 mm and 22.07 mm, fruit cheek between 15.07 mm and 20.0 mm and shape index (length/width) between 1.01 and 1.44. In addition, the highest empty fruit ratio and double kernel ratio in the types were 10 %, but the highest kernel defects were 15 %.
