The Leccio del Corno plant has its origins at the Fattoria del ‘Corno’ in the municipality of San Casciano val di Pesa (FI). Later it spread modestly throughout Tuscany, although its history is very important for its technical characteristics and its resistance to low winter temperatures. This factor has made it ideal for growing super-intensive olive trees.
Regarding its characteristics, we can illustrate:
- the leaf, adult with an elliptical shape, with flat or slightly hyponastic curvature. The slightly helix shape surface is medium in size. The color is green-gray.
- the fruit is green in color with a very late and gradual ripening. The shape is oval symmetrical and small in size.
- the core, with an ellipsoidal and symmetrical shape, of medium-small size. The surface is roughly corrugated with longitudinal fibrovascular grooves with limited depth.
