LECCINO


SYNONYMS: Leccio, Premice, Silvestrone

 
ORIGIN: Tuscany and Umbria

USE:  Oil

TREE: A widely diffused oil variety due to high adaptability. It has vigorous growth with an open semi-pendulous habit. The crown is expansive with many small branches which are curved at the tip. The leaves are of medium size, elliptical-lanceolate in shape and greenish-gray in color. The underside has a yellowish hue.

FRUIT: The drupe is of medium size (2 to 2.5 grams), ellipsoidal and slightly asymmetrical in shape with a rounded tip and flattened base. The maturation is early and simultaneous. The fruit is purple-black although purple green at the optimal picking time. It has a variable oil content of between 16 and 21%. The oil is good, mildly fruity and delicate.

AGRONOMY: The variety is self-sterile. Its pollinators are: Pendolino, Maurino, Frantoio, Piagente, Razzo and Maraiolo. It has good resistance to winds, fog, olive knot, fungus and peacock spot.

COMMENTS: This is a very rustic variety, widely planted throughout the world. The tree is quick to produce and ia adaptable to adverse climatic conditions and parasites. More recently it has been used for the production of table olives, semi-ripe or black.
