Title: Reproductive and Vegetative Behavior of Four Table Olive Cultivars
Authors: T. Caruso, D. Giovannini and F.P. Marra
Vegetative and reproductive behaviour of four table olive cultivars, 'Conservolia,' 'Manzanilla,' 'Nocellara del Belice' and Ticholine,' respectively native of Greece, Spain, Italy and France, were studied in Sicily (37 30' Lat). All the cultivars proved to be self sterile, showed very similar crop load adjustment, fruit develop ment and shoot growth patterns. 'Picholine' was a good pollinizer for 'Conservolia,' 'Manzanilla' and 'Nocellara del Belice,' while 'Manzanilla' and 'Nocellara del Belice' behaved better as pollinizers for 'Picholine.'
