Koroneiki Olive Tree: The Grecian Secret to Liquid Gold

About the Fruit

The Koroneiki Olive, often regarded as the queen of olives, is renowned for producing exceptionally high-quality oil with a robust flavor and piquant aroma. This olive variety originates from the sun-drenched groves of Greece, and its small, asymmetrical fruit yields a treasure trove of liquid gold. Ideal for the discerning palate, Koroneiki Olive Oil is perfect for drizzling over salads, enhancing your cooking, or as a healthy dip for fresh bread.

What to Know About the Tree

Embodying the essence of the Mediterranean, the Koroneiki Olive Tree is an evergreen that offers year-round visual appeal with its silvery-green foliage. It stands as a symbol of peace and longevity, growing with a graceful, open canopy that can reach up to 15-20 feet in height. This resilient tree is drought-tolerant and prefers well-drained soils, making it a superb choice for gardeners seeking a blend of beauty and hardiness.

Harvest Season

The harvest season for the Koroneiki Olive typically commences in late fall to early winter. This period is marked by the ripening of olives from a green to a deeper purple hue, signaling readiness for picking. The olives are then processed to extract their precious oil, which is celebrated for its health benefits and culinary versatility.

Fruitscaping™ with Olive Trees

Experience the Mediterranean in your own backyard with Fruitscaping™ using our Olive Trees. These storied trees have been cherished for millennia for their aesthetic appeal, culinary use, and cultural significance.

Olive trees are well-loved for their stunning silvery foliage and gnarled trunks, which add a rustic and elegant aesthetic to any landscape. Their small, fragrant blooms precede the formation of olives, which can be harvested and processed into olive oil or cured for table olives. Whether for their fruit or simply for their ornamental appeal, olive trees offer unique beauty and versatility.

Olive trees thrive in well-draining soil and full sun, emulating their Mediterranean origins. They are notably drought-tolerant, making them excellent choices for xeriscaping or for regions with less frequent rainfall. Their size can be managed with pruning, allowing them to fit into various garden designs.

When planning your Fruitscaping™ design, consider pairing olive trees with grapevines or fig trees for a truly Mediterranean feel. Their grey-green leaves contrast beautifully with the darker greens of other plants, adding a touch of serenity to your garden.

Discover the joy of Fruitscaping™ with Olive Trees and enjoy the fruits of your labor. From the planting and care to the satisfaction of your own olive harvest, embrace this enriching gardening journey. Embark on a horticultural adventure right in your backyard with our Olive Trees.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
