Abstract

For the majority of local and foreign varieties, Moroccan Picholine and oleasters types, the obtained oil content relating to the fruit fresh weight varied between 14.3% to 23%; excepted, the Picual variety, type oleastre BM2, Manzanille and Cucco varieties and Moroccan Picholine M1 type, which gave oil contents higher than 23%, respectively 23.23%; 23.76%; 23.83%; 25.14% and 25.83% compared to other cultivars. Gordal, Ascolana Dura, and Bouchouk Rkike Varieties, have given average oil content relative to the fresh matter lower than 17% for the local variety Bouchouk Rkike, 16% for Gordal variety and 16.9% for Ascolana Dura variety. Also, in studied oleaster types, noticeable oil contents were obtained especially for the types BM2 (23.76%), BM3 (20.95%), BMR (21.36%), BMM (18.09%). The Gordal and Bouchouk Rkike varieties presented the highest humidy percentage. Ascolana Dura, Cucco and Manzanille, Moroccan Picholine type M1 and oleaster type BM3, BMK, BMR, have the lowest one. By cons, varieties of Bouchouk Laghlide, Bouchouika, Bakhboukh Beldi, Dahbia, Picholine du Languedoc, Picual, Ascolana Tenera, types Moroccan Picholine, G9, G10, S1, S2, M6, type oleasters BM2, BM4, have presented an intermediate percentage of fruit humidity.

Keywords:
