The post-harvest physical properties of three olive cultivars (Butko, Kara Sati and Kizil Sati) from North-Eastern Turkey were investigated and are reported here, and their application is also discussed. Bulk density of the cultivars varied between 583.47 (cv. Butko) and 596.69 kg m-3 (cv. Kara Sati), and porosity varied from 42.25 to 43.68%, respectively. The fruit firmness of cultivars were the highest in cv. Kizil Sati (109.38 kPa), followed by cv. Kara Sati (72.10 kPa) and cv. Butko (61.31 kPa), respectively.
