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.'
