This study was conducted on `Tombul', `Palaz' and `Sivri' hazelnuts growing at six elevations (10 m, 100 m, 200 m, 300 m, 400 m and 500 m) in Giresun province in 1999. Fourteen traits (nut weight, nut width, nut length, nut height, shell thickness, kernel weight, kernel width, kernel length, kernel height, internal cavity, kernel percentage, leaf area, petiole length and petiole thickness) were examined in each cultivar at each altitude. Significant differences among elevations were observed for kernel width, leaf area and petiole length in `Tombul'; for kernel width, kernel height, nut width, nut height, shell thickness, kernel percentage and internal cavity in `Palaz; and for nut weight, nut length, kernel length, kernel height, internal cavity, leaf area and petiole thickness in `Sivri'.
