TREE: A plant of good vigor with long fruit bearing branches. It has an average size crown and a dense regular foliage cover. The name means "white leaf" and refers to the color of the back side of the leaves.

FRUIT: The fruit is medium in size (4.3 grams) and is used for brined olives as well as oil. A high fruit to flesh ratio with a yield of oil of 17-19%. Generally ripens late (~ the end of November) but the fruit resists the cold quite well.
