A small slow-growing, spreading, drought tolerant olive tree with green leaves and silver undersides and black edible fruit once processed. Heavy-cropping, it is considered a 'free-stone' olive as the seed is very easy to remove from the flesh making it highly sought after by the processors of pitted and stuffed olives. The fruit are apple-shaped, light green with tiny whitish spots. They mature to a black colour with a hint of purple and are a medium size. The most popular olive tree variety for Australian gardens.
Ideal for avenue plantings, coastal locations, driveways, group planting, informal screening or as a feature tree. Perfect for large pots.
Olives thrive in a full sunny spot away from frost.
Prefers a fertile loam and a well-drained soil although it will survive in poor soil.
