6 DELICIOUS OLIVE OPTIONS FOR YOUR ORCHARD
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.
