Aglandau Olive Tree
Aglandau Olive Tree is a vigorous and cold hardy French variety that is prized for the intense fruitiness it imparts to oils or as a table olive. It is often blended with other varieties for olive oil for its flavor and also because it keeps for a very long time. Self incompatible so be sure to plant another variety for cross pollination.
