Olea ‘Spanish olive ‘Manzanillo” – 180MM

I am Manzanillo Olive. My family originated from the Mediterranean

Botanic Name: Olea europaea ‘Manzanillo’

Tree – Fruits from a young age

Producing very consistent even round fruit that cures well either green or black I am one of the most popular fruiting olives grown in Australia.

Oil from my crushed fruit has a fresh aroma and a sweet delicate flavour.

Pruning after harvest will help me maintain a dense, compact form.

I can be pruned hard if required and work well in topiary and even as a bonsai.

I am easily maintained at smaller sizes performing well when pots or container grown.

Water me well when I am in flower and during fruit formation to improve the quality of the harvest.
