Olea europaea Koroneiki
olive variety from Botanical Garden - Plovdiv, Bulgaria
This is the most popular Greek variety of olive for oil. It originates from the island of Zakynthos and is officially recognized for the variety that gives the best quality olive oil in the world. The trees are beautiful and bring forth abundantly, even in a pot. The fruits are dark, small and pointed.
Unfortunately, this wonderful olive variety can't grow almost anywhere outdoors without protection in Bulgaria. It suffers damage from frost at temperatures below -8 degrees at temperatures below -12 to -15 degrees may freeze completely, even old trees.
