The Coratina Olive tree will bring an elegant Mediterranean feel to any garden or patio. Imagine growing your own olives for fresh salads, charcuterie, and extra-virgin olive oil!

Perfect for snacking, the fruit has an exceedingly small pit. The Coratina Olive tree is among the best varieties for making olive oil. The extra virgin olive oil makes it a perfect match for equally strong dishes such as bruschetta, hearty soups, and red meat. The coloring of the oil is yellow-green.

The tree itself has gray-green leaves and pretty, white flowers in the spring that give way to small fruit which ripens in the fall. Coratina Olive trees are noted for their early production and for their adaptability to different soils and climates. A great producer with some vigor. Once established these trees are very drought tolerant – an excellent choice for warm climates.

You can grow olive trees in containers in cooler climates – just be sure to move them indoors before freezing temperatures arrive.

The Coratina olive tree is often grown in the shape of an inverted conical vase. The Coratina Olive tree is self-pollinating but is more productive when planted near another olive variety. The fruit ripens mid to late season. This olive’s origin is from Corato, Apulia.

Also known as: Racioppa di Corato, Racema
