Abstract: Olive is an evergreen tree of subtropical regions all over the world, hence it is important to evaluate and characterize the genetic variability of olive. This issue has particular importance in areas where a number of cultivars show adaptation to difficult local environmental conditions. Present study was carried out during 2014-2015, to evaluate various morphological characteristics for the identification of 21 olive cultivars available at the Barani Agricultural Research Institute (BARI), Chakwal, Pakistan. Characterization of olive tree comprised tree vigour, attitude of branches and density of branches, while leaf characterization included the length, width, shape, colour and its angle. It was found that characterization of morphological characteristics is very crucial during parent selection for developing new commercial olive cultivars.
