One of the species that has a natural distribution in our country, rich in nutrient and with wide utilization possibilities is oleaster. In Greek, elace is olive and in Latin, angustofilo means narrow leaf. In this study, the survey programs were organized in Malatya provinces and its districts (Akçadağ, Arguvan, Battalgazi, Hekimhan, Yazıhan and Yeşilyurt), and 15 genotypes were identified. In this genotypes, it was made studies such as recording habitat information, morphological observation and physical / chemical analyzes. Morphological observations have revealed that this taxon have been represented by individuals in the form of bushes and trees, and that the state of thorny have changed as dense, medium, rare and thornless. It has been determined that the shape of the fruit is cylindrical, oval, conical and the fruit color is brown, light brown, yellow and red. The weight of fruits were between 0,30 - 5,53 g, kernel weight were 0.2 - 1.0 g, leaf length were 34,02 - 77,64 mm, leaf width were 10,39 - 20,28 mm. The pH were between 4.60 - 5.34, the amount of fructose were 0.71 - 2.30 g/10 mL, glucose were 1.07 - 2.86 g/10 mL, gallic acid were 18.99 - 302,50 ppm, catechin were 801,58 - 3769,10 ppm, and epigallocatechingallate were 18,10 - 255,48 ppm, routine were 13,53 - 135,45 ppm.
