Pendolino Olives

Pendolino Olives are small to medium-sized olives grown for oil with a 20 to 20% oil content.

The oil is considered good quality. The oil is light green with a light purple blush.

The tree, which is a cultivar, is a good pollinator for other olive trees, but cannot pollinate itself. It tolerates lower temperatures. The branches of the tree look a bit like weeping willow branches. The olives ripen mid-season.

Grown in Argentina, Australia, Tuscany and Umbria. The Italians had some issue with using mechanical harvesting on it, but the Australians are now doing this.

History Notes

Native to Tuscany. Introduced into Australia in 1995.

Language Notes

Pendolino means pendulum, referring to the way the weeping branches can swing back and forth.
