This weeping olive tree is
slow growing but well worth the wait. In fact, to see this
olive tree with its narrow leaves back lit like slivers of a
silver sun, is truly a sight. Pendolino olive trees are
partially self-fertile, but you need pollenizers if you want a
large fruit crop. Compatible olive tree pollenizers include
Leccino and Maurino. Pendolino olive trees are used
extensively as pollenizers in large olive tree groves. The
fruit makes small but delicious green and black table olives
as well. 2 gal
Picholine Olive Tree is actually native to France, with
large, flat, light green leaves, and medium sized fruit,
which can weigh about 3-5 grams. The olives are harvested
green, for eating, and black, for oil. They ripen in late
November to December. Picholine Olives are self-fertile and
are drought tolerant once established.
A plant of very vigorous growth with a round and expansive
crown. The leaves are rather short and light green in color.
Very large fruit is an early ripener and harvest generally
takes place while the olives are still of an intense green
color. An excellent table variety that is widely planted.
