Willow Creek

Mission

An American cultivar used for both oil and green and black table olives.
The oil content is lower (12 -16%) and processes slower than newer cultivars.
The tree grows vigorously and upright.
Bears early, but of low genetic potential and inconsistent in yield.
Due to low pollen quality, ample pollinators are required, normally Frantoio. Sensitive to wet soils and verticillium.
