CORATINA
Also known as: RACIOPPA di CORATO, RACEMA
Area of origin: PUGLIA


TREE: A plant of medium size and moderately pendulant shape. The expansive crown tends towards a globular shape and has long flexible branches. The leaf is deep green in color, elliptical in shape and ends in a slightly mucronate shape.

FRUIT: A typical plant of Puglia with large drupes (5-6 grams) that are elongated ovals and slightly asymmetrical in shape. Ripening is mid to late season (November-December). The fruit which is harvested when the tips are black gives a high yield in oil at the mill (21-26%) that is very fruity in flavor.

AGRONOMY: This variety is self-sterile, of high constant production with a low percentage of aborted ovaries. Pollinators: Frantoio, Leccino, Moraiolo. It has a good resistance to drought, cold and in general to all parasites of the olive tree.

COMMENTS: This variety is characterized by early production and by its very good adaptability to different soils and climates.
