MAURINO
Also known as: RAZZOLA, MAURINO LUCCHESE
Area of origin: TUSCANY


TREE: Maurino is medium-sized, typically Tuscan oil variety. It is of medium vigor with a pendulous habit, while the fruiting branches are delicate with rising tips. The leaves are lanceolate, of medium size and are grayish-green in color.

FRUIT: The fruit is between 3-5 grams in weight, ellipsoidal and slightly asymmetrical in shape and when fully mature is purple-black in color. Fruit maturation is considered to be relatively early and the fruits’ oil, which is highly regarded, is between 14 and 20%. The oil is delicate and not overly fruity.

AGRONOMY: The cultivar is self-sterile, needing a pollinator which can be Pendolino, Leccino, Frantoio or Moraiolo. It has a low ovarian abortion rate, generally under 19%. Fruiting is good, although slightly alternate, and it has a resistance to peacock spot, cold, olive knot and fog.

COMMENTS: This is an excellent pollinator for Moraiolo and Pendolino and can be cultivated in cold, humid zones which are subject to fog. It is widely appreciated for its ability to produce significant amount of fertile pollen and for its compatibility with a wide range of other olive cultivars.
