Pollination – Olive trees are wind pollinated, with the pollen moving 20 – 30 metres from tree to tree. Some varieties are self fertile, but all will benefit from a pollinator. If planting specifically for pickling the fruit, choose a series of varieties that are all suitable for pickling so that harvesting is simplified.
Harvest – Olives for oil production are harvested when black, but for pickling, some varieties are picked when changing from green to greenish yellow, and others are picked when turning black. Suitable for pickling.
