Olea europaea Petroelia
olive variety from Botanical Garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria
The difference with the previous item is the age.
These are 3 years old.
This is a popular Greek variety olives. The trees are beautiful and bring forth abundant. The fruits are dark, large and rounded, with characteristic shape.
This variety can grow in the warmest parts of Bulgaria, and in Greece it has a reputation to be very frost-resistant. But from our experience with it for more than 15 years, we proved that it is too risky for most places in southern Bulgaria, even in places where there are already large and fruit-bearing trees (Asenovgrad). The first few winters after planting are crucial. When enough mild winters, the tree may be able to grow and significantly increase their resilience to cold.
