BOSANA
Also known as: OLIA DI OZZU, OLIA TERZA, PALMA
Area of origin: SARDEGNA


TREE: Medium vigor with a crown spread to the exterior; small branches, long and drooping with tops that grow upwards in a characteristic fashion. The leaf is large, dark green in color, and leathery in texture.

FRUIT: Of medium small size (2-2.5 grams), elliptical in shape, asymmetrical, with a round sub-conical top. Maturation is on the late side (November-December) and very spread out. At harvest the fruit is black violet in color and gives 17-18% in oil.

AGRONOMY: A cultivar of good constant production that is auto-incompatible with a small percentage of aborted flowers (25%). Pollinators include Pizz’e Carroga, Olio Niedda and Tonda di Cagliari. The tree has good resistance to cold. This variety is not noted for any particular sensitivity to the more common olive pests.

COMMENTS: A very rustic variety that adapts well to the different climates and conditions of Sardegna.
