Olicana® was bred by Charles Faram Ltd and has more vigor than its sister Jester. Released in 2014, it was initially planted alongside Jester in 2009.

Currently grown commercially by Townend Farm and Stocks Farm, Worcestershire, it was selected due to a higher tolerance to Powdery Mildew than Challenger.
