TANCHE
Also known as: OLIVE di CARPENTRAS, OLIVE NOIRE di NYONS
Area of origin: FRANCE


TREE: A vigorous plant with an upward growth habit, this tree has an expansive global crown. It has broad leaves, light green in color and rather large.

FRUIT: A cultivar suited for both table and oil. The fruit is 80% pulp, and of good weight (5-6 grams). The fruit is ellipsoidal with a rounded tip. Maturation is late (November-December) when the olives are of a violet black color and contain a very high quality of fine oil (25-30%).

AGRONOMY: Self-sterile. A good producer if actively farmed with good cultural practices. Pollinator: Cayon. Considerable resistance to cold and to olive knot.

COMMENTS: This is the best French variety for making black olives. It prefers light deep soils. Recently it has undergone major dispersion into the less temperate zones.
