    Hi all,

    I have a Leccino olive and I"m looking for someone with a different cultivar so that we can trade pollen. Anyone interested?

    Thanks

    I have an Arbequina, but it has produced olives without a different pollinator. Are you sure you need a different cultivar?

    Yes, I"m sure. I did get 4 olives last year so I guess it does some but it's not known as a self pollinator.
    My info comes from the Saturna Olive Consortium. I know it does depend on the cultivar.
    When your olive flowers can I grab some pollen from you? A few flowers or a couple of q-tips of it should do.

    Cheers
