Koroneiki is the most popular type of olive variety in Greece and is used exclusively for oil production. It is the least demanding in terms of temperature, moisture, soil, resistant to the dry heat conditions of Greece and produces high quality oil with excellent aroma and strong taste. It has a high level of polyphenols and delivers EVOOs with a robust fruity nose, with a touch of balancing bitterness and a strong, peppery finish. Typical flavours include grass and artichokes.
As a tree it has moderate growth and usually reaches a height of 5-7 meters, the leaves are dark green/grey, have the shape of a sword and a length of 5.5 cm with a width of 1 cm. The fruit is rather small with an average weight of 1.3 g, one side is slightly curved and has a small, characteristic nipple.
Depending on the circumstances, the trees can consistently deliver fruit and high yields. They are resistant to dry heat, but under extreme droughts the yield reduction, which takes place every two years, is many times higher. If irrigation is possible, however, the trees produce a relatively stable production each year.
It is an early ripening variety that begins in early October. At the same time, it needs appropriate care in cold winters to ensure a satisfactory flowering period. Their properties make them particularly suitable for the rocky southern and warmer regions of the country (Peloponnese & Crete).
It is also believed that it comes from the Koroni region of Messinia in Peloponnese, from which it got its name.
