In this study were used 82 genotypes of Crambe (Crambe hispanica subsp. abyssinica) which obtained from The USA Gene Bank. The number of days remaining in the rosette, 1000 seed weight (g), seed yield per plant (g), seed oil content (%) and fatty acid composition (%) of Crambe genotypes. According to the results obtained from this study; duration of the rosette stage 41 days, 1000 seed weight 6,6 g, seed yield per plant 2,3 g, seed oil content 13,4%, erusic acid content 54%, oleic acid content 14,35%, linoleic acid content 9,41%, linolenic acid content 7,59% were measured in Crambe genotypes. Keywords : Crambe genotypes, erusic acid, fatty acid composition, seed oil content
