Dual Purpose Olive – For Table and Oil Production

  • Country of Origin: United States of America
  • Zones: 9b
  • Looks: A tree of strong vigor with an erect habit and canopy of medium density.
  • Personality: Prized as a dual-purpose variety, being used in green and black pickling as well as oil production. When mature, the fruit has about 22% oil content. Fruit has a medium removal force and is freestone.
  • Facts of note: Productivity is medium and alternate. Ripening is late. Flowers in late May, and beginning of bearing is intermediate. This variety is considered hardy because of its resistance to cold. It is considered sensitive to olive leaf spot and verticillium wilt but it is resistant to olive knot.
  • Pollination: Partially self-fruitful but fuller crop when pollenized by Ascolana or Sevillano

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.
