This variety is also known as Frantoio and Paragon, and grows into a medium size tree that produces heavy crops with high oil content and is also an excellent table olive that is easy to pickle. Originally from Tuscany, this variety is self-pollinating, but growing Manzanillo, 'Coratina' or 'Leccino' nearby for a pollinator may help increase fruit set. The graceful and billowing greyish foliage make it very attractive as a specimen or hedging plant.
Growing in a wide range of Australian conditions, olives are tolerant of poor soils, but grow best in a well-drained fertile soil. Fertilise in spring and summer and water during flowering and fruit set if required.
