FRANTOIO


SYNONYMS: Bresa fina, Comune, Correggiolo, Crognolo, Frantoiano, Gentile, Infrantoio, Laurino, Nostrato, Oliva lunga, Pendaglio, Pignatello, Raggio, Raggiolo, Rajo, Razza, Razzo, Solciaro, Stringona


ORIGIN: Tuscany and central Italy

USE:  Oil

TREE: An oil variety that is particularly wide spread and appreciated not only in Tuscany and the central zones of Italy, but throughout the world. The plant is of medium vigor, semi-drooping with an open structure and fruiting branches which are long, slender and flexible. The leaves are elliptical, lanceolate, of medium size and glossy dark green.

FRUIT: The drupe is small to medium in size (between 1.5 and 2.5 grams), ovoid in form with visible  whitish markings. Maturation is late and gradual. When mature the fruit is purple-black, but at the preferred picking time green and purple. It is rich in oil (between 17 and 22%) which is very fruity, notably aromatic and of high quality.

AGRONOMY: The tree is self-fertile with high, constant productivity. It is extremely early in setting fruit and has an ovarian abortion rate which rarely exceeds 10%, sometimes being even as low as 1%.

COMMENTS: While the self-fertile character of the tree guarantees a high and constant fruit production, the presence of a pollinator further increases it. This peculiar productive characteristic, as well as the quality of its oil makes Frantoio a highly valuable and irreplaceable variety.
