Description

Olea europaea 'Koroneiki'

One of the most important Greek olives dating back over 3000 years. The Koroneiki olive variety originally was cultivated on the plains, lower hillsides and coastal areas of Crete. Called the Queen of all olive as the quality of the oil that it produces has very low acidity, dark green color, and the undeniable aroma of fresh green olives. Known to produce heavy crops of fruit from a very young age, the dark fruit is very small with a sweet and fruity flavor. Koroneiki is a small tree that is self-fruitful and the perfect landscape plant. Growing 15 to 18 feet, these trees slower growth make them easy to maintain at any height you desire in the landscape. Koroneiki is also a great choice for high-density planting. Very hardy doing well in zone 8, able to tolerate, extreme drought once established or the more humid coastal or climates of the Pacific Northwest.

Planting & Care

One of the most drought resistant trees one can grow that will tolerate high Ph alkaline soils. Olives require little or no fertilization and are drought tolerant once established. Provide good drainage. Plant in anytime spring to early fall. The Koroneiki enjoys both warm and humid environments. Plant in full sun or part shade preferring the morning sun. Olive trees do not do well in windy locations. The trees are evergreen, long-lived, beautiful ornamentals with soft, gray-green foliage. Koroneiki can grow up to 30' outdoors in hot climates. In a container on a patio or indoors it will remain compact, measuring 7' - 10' at full maturity, with regular pruning.
