Title : VARIABILITY OF BIO-POMOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF OLIVE VARIETY CRNICA IN MONTENEGRO
Abstract : Crnica is the second important olive variety on Montenegrin Coast, after variety Žutica. It is the most present in the area of Boka-kotorska sub region, and in lesser extent in the area of Budva - sub region of Bar. Crnica variety is for dual purposes of the fruit, for table use and for oil production. Long period of cultivation and potential mixing with other genotypes and unsystematic selection resulted in differences that are observed in the phenotypic properties of individuals within this variety. The intensity of differences was investigated in eleven Crnica individuals analyzing 22 biological and pomological parameters. Significant variability between individuals was shown. Analyzed accessions were distinguished based on fruit size, oil content in the fruit, etc. Results obtained in this study showed the presence of the clones with bigger fruit and therefore more suitable for table fruit processing and clones with higher oil content that are the potential for olive oil production improvement respectively. Results also suggest the need for further research within this variety.
