The Common Fig is one of the first plants which cultivated by humans. This plant is an important crop for dry and fresh consumption all over the world. In order to inspection of nutritional quality of various fig cultivars in different regions of Lorestan province an experiment was conducted in Medicine University of Lorestan in 2009. Material and methods: In this experiment, amounts of some minerals (potassium, calcium, phosphorus, iron and zinc), protein, fat, sugar, energy, brix (total soluble solids), acidity, pH, vitamin c, brix to acidity ratio and hardness were evaluated in three common fig cultivars (Siah, Rashe and Sefid) of Lorestan province in Gushe, Kelat-e-Zivdar, Mamulan and Zurantel-e-Zivdar regions. Results: Results showed that: Siah cultivar had the highest calcium concentration among fig cultivars. On the other hand, lowest iron concentration observed in Kelat-e-Zivdar as compared to other regions. Higher amount of fat was assayed in Siah and Rashe cultivars than Sefid cultivar. The highest amount of energy and sugar were assayed in Mamulan and Zurantel-e-Zivdar regions. Acidity in Siah and Rashe cultivars was lowest in Gushe region. Gushe region had the lowest and Siah and Rashe cultivars had the greatest brix index. The highest vitamin C was assayed in the figs grown in Gushe region. The highest and lowest brix to acidity ratios were observed in Gushe region in Siah cultivar and in Kelat-e-Zivdar in Sefid cultivar, respectively. There were not any significant differences between cultivars and regions in the case of phosphorus, potassium and zinc concentrations and protein amount. Conclusion: Based on the results obtained, it can be concluded that: the Siah cultivar and Mamulan region relatively had the highest nutritional and qualitative values in Lorestan province.
