The Leccino olive tree variety is one of the most popular olive varieties in Tuscany - but it has also established itself as an excellent oil olive throughout Italy and makes up a large part of the tree population. Due to its wide distribution, there are many regional differences in the DNA within the variety, which ensure that Leccino has different sensitivity to cold in different regions.
Our Leccinos are of course among the hardest!
Leccino is a non-self-compatible olive tree variety that relies on a pollinator. The Italian classics such as Leccio del Corno, Pendolino and Frantoio are suitable here.
