The Queen of Olives - the Koroneiki Olive Tree (Olea europaea 'Koroneiki') produces superior fruit! Giving someone an olive branch has long been a symbol of offering peace and brotherhood. It's an appropriate sentiment, as Olive trees have been cultivated since ancient times for the unique benefits they provide.

Your Koroneiki tree is often called "The Queen of Olives", and is known throughout the world for the superior oil it provides. Even though Koroneiki produces a small fruit, it's a prolific tree with the fruit packing a large amount of natural antioxidants and other health benefits into each small olive.

The mid-season harvest of olives begins when the olives turn black in color—an exciting sight and invitation to enjoy the tastes of the season! It's a fast-growing tree with a spreading habit and open canopy. It blooms early in the spring, but the tiny flowers are mostly hidden by the foliage.

Planting and Application:

Plant one by your patio or front porch where you can watch your harvest develop. Having your own Olive tree is a great conversation starter and a wonderful way to bring the health benefits of olives to your own home. Prune as small as needed for container gardening and to use this as an exotic houseplant!

With white flowers and beautiful foliage on a smaller sized tree, you’ll enjoy Koroneiki even when it’s not dripping in fruit. Use as a patio or shade tree around backyard pools and seating areas, or as a unique specimen tree for front yard landscaping!
