Olea europaea 'Manzanillo'
The most important Spanish variety of fruiting olive, this sturdy evergreen tree is identified by its distinctive round fruit shape. The fruit is easy pitting, with an unusually small pit, and excellent quality flesh. Easily maintained at any height, and a landscape wonder for extremely hot, dry and warm winter areas.
A Spanish variety of fruiting olive prized for both cured fruits and oil, this attractive, evergreen tree is prized as an ornamental plant for its rugged good health, strappy grey-green leaves, clusters of tiny creamy blossoms in late spring, and the hard, green fruits that can ripen in long-summer areas with hot weather if there is a different variety of olive nearby as a pollinizer.
