The present study was realized in 2013-2014 on different type of cornelian cherry grown from seed, in the district of Tokat Almus, Turkey. The determination of some physical and chemical properties was studied. For this purpose, in this region, 40 cornelian cherry trees have been identified and were recorded by GPS. The evaluation was based on the observations and particular type selection criteria. In this regard, nine genotypes of cornelian cherry were subjected to the analysis. The fruit width ranged between values of 8.41 and 10.67 mm, the average fruit height between 13.51 to 18.84 mm, and the average fruit weight between 0.78 to 1.73 g were determined. As results provided by physicochemical analysis were the pH between 2.60 and 4.02, soluble solids (TSS) 11.4-15.5 % and the titratable acidity were up to 0.37.
