Description

Olea europaea 'Correggiola', commonly known as the 'Correggiola' Olive Tree, is a cultivar of the traditional olive tree, highly prized for both its ornamental and agricultural value. Originating from the Mediterranean region, this variety is specifically revered for its high-quality olives, which are excellent for oil production. Offered in a 40cm size, it is an ideal choice for gardeners and growers looking to cultivate their own olives or add a Mediterranean flair to their landscape.

Common Name: 'Correggiola' Olive Tree
Mature Height (meters): Typically grows to about 4-6 meters
Mature Width (meters): Approximately 3-4 meters
Spacing: Plant at least 3-4 meters apart from other trees or structures to ensure adequate growth and air circulation.
Foliage: The 'Correggiola' Olive Tree is characterized by its narrow, silvery-green leaves that are a classic feature of olive trees. The foliage is dense and evergreen, providing year-round interest.
Flowering Period: It produces small, creamy-white flowers in spring, which are subtle but play a crucial role in olive production.
Fruit: This cultivar is esteemed for its small to medium-sized olives, which are known for their high oil content and excellent quality. The olives typically ripen in late autumn and are often used for producing high-quality olive oil.
Form/Habit: Olea europaea 'Correggiola' has a rounded, open canopy with a somewhat gnarled and picturesque trunk as it matures, giving it a distinct Mediterranean look.
Uses: Ideal for olive production, ornamental gardening, and landscaping. It is also well-suited for container planting, making it a great choice for patios, terraces, and areas with limited space.
Sun: Prefers full sun for optimal growth and fruit production.
Maintenance: Requires minimal maintenance. Pruning can be done to shape the tree and maintain its size, particularly if grown in a container.
Water Requirement: Drought-tolerant once established, but regular watering is beneficial during the initial growing years and during dry spells.
