Agronomic and commercial considerations: The variety is self-incompatible. It blossoms at the same time as “Bianchera” and “Rocca Bernarda”, even if the fruit set ends earlier. It has a good productivity, but the oil content is very low. Fruits are medium-sized and ripen early, at the end of October. Is considered an alternate variety. The early and high productivity together with the high degree of environmental compatibility, make the variety feasible for new installations in environments at the limit of the species cultivation. It must be considered, however, its limited capacity for oil synthesis. It is moderately susceptible to the olive fruit fly (Bactrocera oleae), to the olive leaf spot (Cycloconium oleaginum) and to the olive knot (Pseudomonas savastanoi).
