GRIGNAN – OIL VARIETY
Native to Veneto.
Medium-sized plant with an erect growth habit. Leaves are elliptic, small-sized and have a green-grey colour. If grown in its ideal environment, it guarantees an abundant and constant production of olives. It has a great resistance to draught, and a good resistance to scab and cold. Fruits are not very oily (14-15%) and they are medium, small-sized. Fruits usually grow in bunches of 3-5 drupes. Harvest is carried out when olives are purplish-black, and they give an excellent-quality oil.
It has an early starting age of fructification and needs adequate pruning every year in order to provide lightening to its dense foliage.
