Olive trees come potted and are self-fruitful, except where noted. Even if pollinizer is not required, mixing varieties will help increase yields. Evergreen, long-lived, beautiful ornamental with soft gray-green foliage. The ideal time of year to plant olives is in early fall. Alternately early spring is another good time of year to plant olives. The slow growing trees reach about 25’–30’ in maturity. Thrives in hot summers but will tolerate coastal regions too. Winter temperatures shouldn’t drop below 22°–25°F (green fruit will be damaged at 32°F), but average winter temperatures above 50°F will inhibit fruiting. Drought resistant trees grow in alkaline soils with little fertilization. The potted trees will be about 24"-36” tall from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree, approximately pencil caliper (1/8”–1/4”). Plan your planting location to provide good drainage. These are evergreen trees and thus the dormant bare root guarantee does not apply. We guarantee your trees will arrive in good, viable condition. Contact us immediately if they do not.
