Selected olive from the Nikita Botanical Garden on the Crimea peninsula. An evergreen tree, it grows to 10′-15′ in many years, with soft gray, willow shaped leaves. Needs a warm site, against a south or west wall is best, with well-drained soil. If the site is warm enough, it may produce olives if a second variety is planted nearby.
