This research was conducted to determine nut dimensions change as a function of number of nuts cluster-1 (one, two, or three) in 'Foşa' and 'Kargalak' hazelnuts grown in Sakarya and Trabzon districts in Turkey in 2016. Randomized block designs with three replications were used. Nine ocaks were used for each cultivar, for a total of 18 ocaks in total. The nut traits investigated were nut weight, nut length, nut width, nut depth, shell thickness, kernel percentage, kernel weight, kernel length, kernel width, kernel depth, and diameter of the central cavity. The results showed that nut weight, kernel weight, kernel percentage and shell thickness in both 'Foşa' and 'Kargalak' decreased as the number of nuts cluster-1 increased. Further, nut and kernel dimensions in both cultivars decreased as the number of nuts cluster-1 increased.
