FRANGIVENTO

 
SYNONYMS: CIPRESSINO


ORIGIN: PUGLIA

USE:   OIL / POLLINATOR

TREE: A plant of notably vigorous vegetation, rapid upward growth with a typical rising habit and gathered crown. The leaves are lanceolate, medium-small, flat surfaced and dark gray green.

FRUIT: This olive is of a rounded oval shape, at maturity it weighs 2-5 grams and is used for producing an oil yielding 15-17% that is fine and light. Maturation is spread out but is complete between the middle of November and the middle of December.

AGRONOMY: Frangivento is a self-sterile variety of excellent and constant fruiting with a notable percentage of aborted ovaries (50-60%). Pollinators: Frantoio, Leccino, Pendolino. Excellent resistance to salty winds, good resistance to climatic extremes and parasites.

COMMENTS: This tree has a tendency to grow upwards in the sense of forming a column with branches and shoots that grow straight up. This characteristic, combined with a marked resistance to salty winds, has made this variety one used primarily for windbreaks.
