​​Origin
Common cultivar grown in Tuscany and central Italy. Cultivated in Istria since 1940.​​

Resistance to adversities
Susceptible to olive knot, peacock (or eye) spot (spilocea oleagina), but resistant to other common parasites.

Quality of the oil
Appreciated for its high quality oil. If harvested when the olives are wine-red, produces an intensely oil with pleasantly spicy, bitter flavours. The oil yield is good, but the olives can also be preserved.​​
