Apulia (Southern Italy) is outstanding nationally in olive acreage and production with a surface of more than 350,000 hectares and an estimate annual yield of about 1,500,000 tonnes. Apulian olive nursery industry is very active and produces annually over 1,500,000 olive young trees, 90% as grafted plants and 10% as self-rooted. Besides very important and well-known genotypes, Apulian nurseries produce large amounts of additional cultivars, repeatedly mentioned by several Authors but never described. That is the case, for instance, of 'Cima di Melfi' (about 100,000 trees annually produced) and 'Nociara' (over 50,000 trees annually produced). In order to fill the existing gap, the description of the essential traits of some supposedly native Apulian olive varieties, for oil making and for pickling is reported.

Abstract

Apulia (Southern Italy) is outstanding nationally in olive acreage and production with a surface of more than 350,000 hectares and an estimate annual yield of about 1,500,000 tonnes. Apulian olive nursery industry is very active and produces annually over 1,500,000 olive young trees, 90% as grafted plants and 10% as self-rooted. Besides very important and well-known genotypes, Apulian nurseries produce large amounts of additional cultivars, repeatedly mentioned by several Authors but never described. That is the case, for instance, of 'Cima di Melfi' (about 100,000 trees annually produced) and 'Nociara' (over 50,000 trees annually produced). In order to fill the existing gap, the description of the essential traits of some supposedly native Apulian olive varieties, for oil making and for pickling is reported.
