Olive trees are a very hardy fruit tree well suited to Perth’s Mediterranean climate. With silvery-green leaves and a dense evergreen canopy they make a perfect ornamental tree and are very useful for screening. Suitable for coastal conditions. A very long lived tree that can be a moderate grower when young but slows down with age. The small creamy white flowers are produced in late spring followed by the fruit. Can be grown in large pots successfully. Best in full sun.
Whilst not a true Kalamata olive, the Jumbo Kalamata is similar in flavour. Great for making green pickled olives.
Fruit : Very large oval-shaped fruit with a small seed.
Possible Pollinators: Self pollinating.
