As indicated by the name this Olive hails from Greece. It has a nice compact form making a good choice for topiary work. Attractive grey green foliage and small white flowers followed by heavy crops of small fruit that have good oil content. Happiest in the sun with protection from harsh wind. Evergreen.
While Olives can tolerate poor soil they are happiest in nice fertile loam. If your soil is poor for best results give your Olive tree some well balanced fertilizer every now and then. Also do not let the tree dry out when the fruit is developing.
Suitable for warmer areas including Auckland/Northland
