A great French variety, originating in Collias and Gard. A heavy fruiting tree and reliable performer. The olives are medium sized with a unique flavour – fruity and peppery at the same time. Can be kept at 3m tall x 2m wide or left to grow 10m tall x 4m wide. Use as a table olive and to make oil. Partly self-fertile. Benefits from cross pollination with Leccino or Manzanillo. Fruit ripens April- June.
