The importance varietal diversity of fig tree in the traditional agro ecosystems of the Riffian Mountains remains ignored. To evaluate it, a prospection and characterization were carried out in North West of Morocco. Seventy-five morphological parameter traits were used to characterize the fig accessions. In the first way of hierarchical clustering, the fig accessions were distributed into three main groups. The groups were very heterogeneous and include many clusters separate under tow or more clusters. Thus, it could be concluded that there are a wide range of variability within the cultivated fig accessions under current study. This diversification could enrich the genetic base of this genus and required more studies to achieve the maximum usefulness from this diversification.
