Olives from this Sicilian cultivar are known as Castelvetrano. If you haven't experienced biting into one, it's time to seek out these exceptional olives. The drupes are huge, up to a quarter ounce, and the brightest green after brining. With a small pit and a buttery, perfumed flesh, this olive is incomparable. If you're in the Bay Area, go to Berkeley Bowl for your Castelvetrano fix. The oil is likewise remarkable, with a light body and a rosy fragrance. The Nocellara del Belice tree has a wide crown, medium height to about 20' and produces heavily. Disease resistant, especially when grown in fertile soils with adequate moisture. Will have higher yields with a pollenizer such as Pendolino. Grown in 4" x 6" pots, these trees as of July 2023 are about 3' tall, some branching, full rootball.
