Olive (Olea europaea L.) consumption and production are socially and economically important in Iran. The aim of this experiment was to evaluate the vegetative characteristics, floral biology, fruit characteristics, oil percentage, and yield of eleven olive cvs. (‘Arbequina’, ‘Amygdalolia’, ‘Bledy’, ‘Roghani’, ‘Zard’, ‘Sevillana’, ‘Koroneiki’, ‘Conservalia’, ‘Gordal Sevillana’, ‘Manzanilla’, and ‘Mission’) in Kazeroun olive research station, Fars province, Iran. This experiment, conducted in completely randomized blocks design with three replications, was active for five years, 2004 until 2008. The results exhibited morphological trait differences across the cultivars. ‘Amygdalolia’ and ‘Conservalia’ were suitable in subtropical areas for canning and oil, ‘Sevillana’, ‘Manzanilla’, and ‘Gordal Sevillana’ as canning ‘Arbequina’ and ‘Koroneiki’ can be grown as oil cultivars in subtropical climate.
