EMPELTRE


SYNONYMS:
Aragonesa, Comun’, de Aceite, Fina, Injerto, Llei, Macho, Mallorquina, Navarro, Negral, Payesa, Salsena, Terra Alta, Vera, Verdiel, Zaragozana


ORIGIN: CATALONIA (Spain)

USE:  Oil / Table

TREE: This variety derives it's name from the Catalonian word EMPELT (to graft). It is a vigorous variety with an upright shape and dense crown which produces an abundance of new wood each year. The leaves are elliptical / lanceolate in shape; medium small, short and narrow in size; and matte dark green in color.

FRUIT: Black at maturation, freckled with an elongated oval, slightly asymmetrical shape. The fruit is of medium small size (2 to 6 grams) with a rounded top. The yield in oil is good, 21-23%. The variety is also useful for table fruit.

AGRONOMY: A very productive variety which enters into production later than Arbequina. It is considered rustic because of it's good adaptability to various microclimates as well as freezes and drought. Generally demanding as to land and cultivation it must be actively farmed. Partly self fertile. Maturation is early and uniform (1st week in November). Moderate resistance to Olive knot.

   COMMENTS:   This variety adapts well to mechanical   harvesting due to it's even maturation and low resistance to detachment, resulting in a removal rate of 85% to 90%.
