PENDOLINO


SYNONYMS: MAURINO FIORETINO, PIANGENTE

 
ORIGIN:  CENTRAL ITALY, TUSCANY

USE:  OIL / POLLINATOR

TREE: This is a slow growing cultivar of limited development with a very obvious weeping habit. The crown is dense and abundant with leaves of medium size which are lanceolate, thin, long and rather dark green-gray in color.

FRUIT: Its form is ellipsoidal, asymmetrical with a rounded tip and weighs between 1.2-2 grams. It generally matures simultaneously, although the time for maturation is intermediate in relation to the other Tuscan cultivars. The drupe, which is black in color with a pruinose surface, has an oil content of between 22 and 23%. The oil has a delicate flavor and is pleasant.

AGRONOMY: Due to its high and constant pollen production, this oil variety is considered an ideal pollinator for most Tuscan oil cultivars. It is self-sterile and prefers Maurino and Leccino as pollinators. It has a mild resistance to cold. Because of its long, flexible branches, it is well-suited to manual harvesting.

COMMENTS: It is a cultivar widely appreciated by growers for its high fruit production and plays a crucial role as an excellent pollinator, both for table and oil cultivars.
