Background: The study was conducted at the various locations in Antalya province, where the Tavşan Yüreği olive variety is registered as the Tavşan Yüreği olive variety, which is spreading especially in Kepez and Manavgat districts.
Methods: The objective of this study was to determine a homonym of Olea europaea var. Tavşan Yüreği by using molecular identification and image analysis. Based on molecular analyses and morphological measurements made on collected leaf and fruit samples collected, the morphological identification method is used based on imaging techniques from high-resolution photos.
Result: The results showed that, according to the molecular definition and image analysis measurements, the source of the difference between all locations, including the BATEM sample, may be genotype or phenotypic diversity within the variety.
