Favarol Olive Tree
The Favarol Olive Tree is a very old Italian olive cultivar and is prized for its delicious and aromatic olive oil. Favarol olive trees are self-sterile so will not produce fruit without another olive variety nearby. Leccino, Frantoio, and Arbequina are good pollinators but any of our olive varieties should pollinate Favarol.
