ORIGIN: Sardegna

USE:  Oil

TREE: Of medium vigor but with a high degree of site adaptability. The crown spreads to the exterior. It has small branches, long and drooping with tops that grow upwards in a characteristic fashion. The leaf is large, dark green in color, and leathery in texture.

 

FRUIT: Of medium small size (2-2.5 grams), elliptical in shape, asymmetrical, with a round sub-conical top. Maturation is on the late side (November-December) and very spread out with ripening from bottom to top. At harvest the fruit is black violet in color and gives 17-18% in oil.

 

AGRONOMY: A cultivar of alternate production that is partially self-incompatible with a small percentage of aborted flowers (25%). Pollinators include Pizz’e Carroga, Olio Niedda and Tonda di Cagliari. The tree has good resistance to cold. This variety is not noted for any particular sensitivity to the more common olive pests.

 

COMMENTS: A very rustic variety that adapts well to the different climates and conditions of Sardegna.
