ARBEQUINA


SYNONYMS: ARBEQUI, ARBEQUIN,  BLANCAL


ORIGIN: CATALONIA, ARAGONA, ANDALUSIA    (Spain)

USE:  OIL

TREE: A tree of medium vigor with a weeping shape. It has a crown of average size and produces a small amount of new wood each year. The leaves are elliptical Lanceolate in shape and shiny dark green in color.

FRUIT: Spherically symmetrical in shape, small in size   (1.75 - 2.0 grams) with a rounded top. Fruit is black at maturation which occurs in mid season (the second half of November), but not all at once. The yield in oil is good  (20 - 22%), of excellent quality with good organoletic characteristics.

AGRONOMY: A productive variety that enters into production early. This variety is considered rustic with good resistance to frosts and with high adaptability to different climates and soils (including poor ones).  Susceptible to Black Scale, Olive Leaf Spot  (Peacock Spot) and to the Olive Fly (Dacus Oleae).

COMMENTS: A variety that adapts well to dense planting because of it's small size, but adapts poorly to mechanical harvest by shaker because of the small size of the fruit., the pendant shape of the tree and the strong attachment of the fruit.
