Cailletier Olive Tree
Cailletier: Cailletier or Niçoise are the classic little, black table olives used for Nicoise salad. A native of the Alps-Maritime region of France, the table fruit is named after the curing style of the Nice region on the Cote d’Azur.
Oil tastes of fresh almond and hazelnut
Good resistance to cold
Sensitive to olive fly, olive scale and olive knot
Cailletier olive trees are self-fertile, but produce better yields when cross pollinated with other varietals.
Fruit production usually starts between 2-4 years. At maturity they can grow between 25-30 feet in height with slightly weeping branches and broad green leaves. Great for anyone wanting a delicate tasting oil and a delicious black table olive.
