Coratina Olive Trees

Coratina olive trees are very adaptable plants that produce abundantly in hot, dry regions and rocky soils. It is a genetically modified olive cultivar with the most significant concentrations of phenolic compounds of all olive cultivars tested. Consequently, the extra-virgin olive oil produced by this plant’s fruit has outstanding oxidation stability. On top of that, it is common to see the Coratina olive tree planted in the form of an inverted conical vase—distinguished by its capacity to produce early and by its tolerance to a variety of soils and temperatures.

Care and Maintenance

Coratina olive trees are exceedingly adaptable and flourish in a wide range of ordinary, well-drained, slightly alkaline soils. However, they produce more fruit when grown close to another olive variety, such as Leccino, Frantoio, or Moraiolo. Water deeply and frequently during the first few growing seasons to help the plant build a strong root system. Once established, reduce the frequency of watering; it is drought-tolerant. However, protect young plants from extreme winter weather.
