We’ve added another variety to our inventory
Jun 26th, 2019 by Michael

The Premier olive is another variety developed at the Nikita Botanical Garden near the Black Sea. Like its sister varietals, Seascape and Universal, Premier is self-pollinating and produces medium to large table olives. It’s currently available in one gallon pots @$40. Contact us via email: info-at-olivetrees.ca to order this or Universal or Seascape.

Universal Olive—varietal developed originally at Nikita Botanical Garden in Yalta

We’ve brought in some new cultivars from Oregon that were developed some years ago in Yalta at the Nikita Botanical Arboretum. In addition to the Universal (above) we have added Seascape in one gallon pots to our inventory. Both are available for purchase now @$40. Use the contact us form to order.

Wet and cold spring means slow growth
Apr 20th, 2018 by Michael

It’s been wet and cold here on Saturna and that means olives in pots are slow to wake up from winter. The slow growth makes it hard to estimate which trees will be suitable for sale by early June.

This six year old Maurino is showing a better fruit set this year than last:

and its companion Leccino shows a little less fruit but also better than last year:

Victoria Seediness on Saturday
Feb 18th, 2016 by Michael

Stop by our table at Victoria Seedy Saturday—in addition to featured cultivars such as Amphissa, Cailletier and Frantoio we’ll have some one-offs such as Boutellian—a wonderful French variety. And this 3 gallon Carolea pictured below. Carolea is a hard to find but very good variety for our growing region. It’s cold hardy and produces early ripening fat olives. Later this year a few more trees will come available but for now this the only one I have ready for sale.

The harvest on my trees planted in the ground was light compared to last year but here are some cured olives harvested from the potted trees at the nursery:
