Olive ‘Koroneiki’ (Olea europaea)
‘Koroneiki’ is a self-fertile olive similar to ‘Arbequina’, but it produces higher yields of small, tasty olives. Fragrant flowers appear in springtime and it fruits in the late fall. Like all olives, the fruit must be cured before eating, or made into olive oil. Although, ‘Koroneiki’ is self-fertile, we recommend a companion olive such as ‘Arbequina’ for better pollination and higher yields. Olives are well suited for containers as they are drought tolerant and can take a winter chill into the 40’s at night and, in fact, they require a chill to set bud. Their silvery-green foliage and dark purple, ripe olives add eye-catching appeal to any edible landscape.

Olive ‘Arbequina’ (Olea europaea)
This self-fertile olive from northern Spain is used both for its oil and as a table olive. Olives are easy-to-grow, rugged plants that tolerate dryness both in soil moisture and humidity and a wide variation in temperature from just below freezing to the triple digits. To successfully flower plants, give lots of sun and a period of 30-45°F at night on a consistent basis during the winter. ‘Arbequina’ is a great olive for pots as it flowers at an early age, often when no more than a foot in height, and produces an abundance of small, dark tasty olives.
