Description Fine Print
 
Olea europaea 'Chemlali' ('Chemlali de Sfax') is a little-known olive commonly grown in central and southern Tunisia. It is considered an ornamentally beautiful tree with erect growth and a lovely, spreading canopy and is also valued for its large crops of small, tasty, dark fruit that produces a mild, fruity oil for use on its own or blended. 'Chemlali' is self-fertile, begins to bear fruit early on young plants, and is very cold hardy and drought resistant with moderate salt tolerance. It thrives in hot summers but tolerates cooler coastal regions. The presence of a second different olive cultivar will increase yields.
