OLIVE 'KOLOSSUS KALAMATA' PBR

OLIVE 'KOLOSSUS KALAMATA' PBR

Olea europaea 'Kolossus Kalamata' PBR
Member $22.95
Non-Member $26.95
A very attractive and drought-tolerant tree that produces everyone’s favourite pickling olive. Plump fruit must be hand picked for best presentation as they bruise easily, so growing at home is the best way to ensure you have high quality olives. Pick when purplish-black, as Kalamatas are not good green olives. Self-pollinating but fruits better with ‘Frantoio’.

OLIVE 'PICUAL'
OLIVE 'PICUAL'
PLANTS: WOLPI
A standard of the Spanish olive oil producers, this cultivar is the highest oil yielding olive suited to cold winters and hot dry summers. `Picual' is ideal for inland regions of Australia. `Pendolino' is the ideal pollinator, but 'Arbequina' or any other olive will improve pollination.

OLIVE 'CORREGGIOLA'
OLIVE 'CORREGGIOLA'
PLANTS: WOLC
Related to `Frantoio' but ripening a little later, this slow maturing olive has excellent oil content. Originally from Tuscany, this variety needs `Coratina' or `Leccino' for successful pollination.
