Description Fine Print
 
Olea europaea Midnight ('Krimskaya') is from the Nikita Botanic Garden in the Ukraine. It offers excellent cold hardiness in zone 8 and is likely hardy in zone 7. It produces abundant crops of large, flavourful, early-ripening fruit that can be picked when green or allowed to age to jet black on the tree. It also makes a flavourful olive oil. The presence of a different olive cultivar for pollination is likely required. Olives can be hardy in coastal BC in protected locations with excellent drainage. They will benefit from mulching and added protection in cold snaps. Elsewhere they make easy and beautiful container specimens and houseplants or greenhouse plants in winter. Provide as much heat and sun as possible in summer.
