Grown primarily in the Languedoc region of France, the Picholine is the go to olive for martinis due to its nutty flavor and meaty texture. An esteemed table olive, cured when green. Late harvest, so difficult to bring in a crop in areas with early frost. The tree has a short, upright and delicate growth pattern, with pale green leaves. Partially self-fertile, but a better harvest if planted with Leccino or Manzanillo. Despite its delicate looks, Picholine is nevertheless a sturdy grower. Grown in 5" x 8" pots, trees as of April 2022 are small, about a foot tall, flowering, roots well developed.
