Haas Improved Manzanillo Fruiting Olive
Olea europaea 'Haas Improved Manzanillo'
|Description||A stately small landscape specimen, distinguished by its large spherical olives with smaller pits, yielding more flesh than the popular Manzanillo. Evergreen foliage is more finely textured, with dense, arching branches on a more compact, rounded form. Blooms and matures about a week earlier. Olives are useful stuffed, salted green, black, or for oil.|
|Watering||Once established, water if very dry.|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 15 to 20 ft. tall, 10 to 15 ft. wide.|
|Care||Thrives in average to lean, well-drained soils; tolerates high pH, poor soils. Water deeply, regularly in first few growing seasons to establish extensive root system. Once established in landscape, reduce frequency; heat and drought tolerant. Older trees are often more cold tolerant, to about 15 degrees F. Avoid pruning during periods of rainfall.|
|Lore||The name for the genus is derived from the Latin word for this plant 'oliva'. Known as the "olive of Seville", the most common variety of Spanish olive is Manzanillo, the classic small green olive often sold salted in Spanish markets. It is also ranked as the world's number one table olive. The Manzanillo variety was imported to the U.S. from Spain in the late 1800s. Fruit color ranges from absinthe green to various shades of red, to black depending on stage of harvest. The name is often misspelled as Manzanilla.|
