Oliva di S. Biagio, Oliva lucchese
(area of origin: TUSCANY)
Tree: Plant of considerable development, very vigorous and with a globular, spreading crown. Elliptical-lanceolate, regular, rather short and light green leaves.
Fruit: Very large (7-9g), ellipsoidal, asymmetrical, with a sub-conical apex and a rounded base. Maturation is precocious; the harvest is carried out towards the beginning of September when the olives always have a beautiful intense green colour.
Agronomic characteristics: Valuable table cultivar; presents a very high female morphological sterility (ovarian abortion) (60-70%). Productivity is good and quite regular. Resistance: excellent to cold and average to cyclone.
Considerations: Excellent table variety, it has also found an important diffusion outside the Mediterranean basin.
