6 DE­LI­CIOUS OLIVE OP­TIONS FOR YOUR OR­CHARD

NZ Lifestyle Block - - New Product Guide -

OLIVES ARE one of the eas­i­est trees to grow and the hardi­est, so they’re great for the home or­chard. Ed­i­ble Gar­den grows a wide range of olives in its nurs­ery, in­clud­ing the best oil and pick­ling va­ri­eties: • Fran­toio, heavy crop­per, highly-ac­claimed world­wide for the good qual­ity of its oil; • Lec­cino, does well in most parts of NZ; • J5, par­tic­u­larly good for warmer North­land con­di­tions; • Man­zanilla, a lovely pick­ling va­ri­ety with a small stone and lots of flesh.

Oth­ers in­clude the Mid­dle Eastern olive va­ri­eties Na­bali and Souri.

The trees are grown in con­tain­ers and are avail­able all-year­round as a sin­gle leader tree with side feath­er­ing.

Ed­i­ble Gar­den spe­cialises in a wide range of old-fash­ioned, whole­some, heir­loom va­ri­eties of fruit and nut trees and a range of berries that can be grown in your home gar­den, qual­ity trees that will sus­tain and nour­ish you with your own home-grown har­vests.
