Use for Table Olives or Oil

  • Country of Origin: Italy
  • Zones: 8-9
  • Looks: Vigorous tree with an open semi-pendulous habit. The crown is ample and expansive with many pendulous small branches which are curved at the tip.
  • Personality: The maturation is early and simultaneous. The fruit is purple-black although purple green at the optimal picking time. It has a variable oil content of between 16 and 21%. The oil is good, mildly fruity and delicate.
  • Facts of note: Good resistance to winds, fog, olive knot, fungus and peacock spot. Rustic variety, widely planted throughout the world. The tree is quick to produce and resists well adverse climatic conditions and parasites. More recently it has been used for the production of table olives, semi-ripe or black.
  • Pollination: Self-sterile. Pollinated principally by Pendolino, although Frantoio is also effective.

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. Plan your planting location to provide good drainage.

The potted trees will be about 18"-36” tall from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree, approximately 1/8”–1/4” diameter (measured just above the graft).

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.
