COBRANÇOSA

Country: Portugal
Purpose: Oil
Distribution: Trás-os-Montes.
Synonyms: “Verdal Cobrançosa”, “Quebrançosa”, “Salgueira”
Agronomic and commercial considerations: This variety is highly appreciated thanks to its tolerance to cold temperatures and to iron chlorosis caused by limestone soils. However, it is considered sensitive to drought climates and saline soils. The entry into production is medium as well as the flowering period. It is a self-compatible variety with high and constant productivity. The ripening period is medium, as it also is the oil content. Although the fruits have a low resistance to detachment, a characteristic that also facilitates its mechanization, the natural drop is limited. It is considered susceptible to the olive knot (Pseudomonas savastanoi) and to the anthracnose of olive (Colletotrichum gloeosporioides).
