Barnea

Israeli bred cultivar planted for oil production, also suited for green and black table olives.
Fruit are medium sized, not unlike Kalamata in appearance.
Barnea oil extracts easily, (20 -24%) with a smooth mild taste rather than pungent and bitter making it an excellent blending oil.
Trees are vigorous with upright habit, coming into production very early with very high and constant yield under irrigation.
Under optimal conditions it has the genetic ability to produce 32kg/tree (18ton/ha) Barnea is considered as a good pollinator, in combination with Coratina, Koroneiki, Leccino, Picual and Arbequina.
Harvesting period is early to intermediate. Some sensitivity to salinity and Verticillium is experienced.
