AMPHISSA

 
SYNONYMS: Konservolia, Amphissis, Milolia, Patrini, Piliou, Salonitiki, Voliotiki


ORIGIN: Greece: Grecia centrale, Salona, Volos, Evia. Ricopre.

USE:  Table / Oil

TREE: A tree of strong vigor with a spreading habit and canopy of medium density. The leaves are broad and flat of medium length giving an elliptic lanceolate shape.

FRUIT: A dual purpose olive of high weight; ovoid and asymmetric in shape. The timing of harvest depends on the use of the fruit which may be for green or black olives or for oil. Oil content is medium.

AGRONOMY: Amphissis grows quickly and comes into bearing in 3 or 4 years. Productivity is high but alternate. The pistil abortion rate is high. Resistance to cold and olive knot is good, but it is sensitive to vemticillium wilt and overly dry conditions.

COMMENTS: This tree adapts to many environmental conditions, it can be grown up tp 2000 feet above sea level. This fact combined with the versitility of the fruit (green or black olives or oil) accounts for it being planted on over 70 % of Greece's table growing acreage.
