Olive Tree, Chemlali
This olive tree is a large and vigorous one, with leather-like leaves that are green on the top and silver on the bottom. The olives are smaller than most other varieties, but they pack a flavorful punch that stands alone or pairs well with others. Olives flourish in a wide range of climates as long as there is good soil drainage and cool winters, with hot dry summers free from humidity. They prefer a soil that is rich in humus.
