Delicious olives, great for snacking and cooking

The Greek Olive tree is renowned for producing large crops of fruit, which are commercially pressed to make extra virgin olive oil. This tree makes a great addition to your landscape. It can grow up to 30 feet outdoors in hot climates. In a container on a patio or indoors it will remain compact, measuring 15 to 20 feet at full maturity, with regular pruning.

The tree produces small, aromatic, cream-colored flowers amid shiny evergreen leaves. Flowers are both male and female and are pollinated largely by wind. The green olives turn purple as they ripen and become ready to harvest in early October. Later crops will be ready to harvest in early January. The olives have a full flavor and are healthful as well as delicious. Earlier crops will have a slightly fruiter taste that later ones.

The Greek Olive enjoys warm and humid environments, full sunlight or partial shade. This is a drought-tolerant tree that will not demand frequent watering. A high-nitrogen fertilizer is advisable upon planting, to give the tree an initial boost. It is a low-maintenance tree that can be grown outdoors in the humid, southern climes but will also survive in a container on a northern patio or balcony if it can be brought indoors during the colder months.

Greek Olive
The 2nd one I bought is good but I never heard back about the first that died with no explanation. I did write about it and was told if it didn't revive, let us know. Never heard anything and I did write.

Looking forward to harvest
I planted the trees only 7 feet apart, on either side of entrance to my shed. One shot up in no time. The other just sat there for several weeks. We were very dry, but I watered. Now # 2 has significant new growth. I'll need to trim # 1 this fall to keep them looking like twins.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Greek Olive



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Greek Olive .

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Greek Olive gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Greek Olive again after the transplant is complete.

when and how do i harvest olives from my koroneiki olive tree ?
A shopper on Sep 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Howdy from Houston... not sure that we have a good report... we have a fine young Koro Olive tree... two years planted... about 5-6 feet high now- not a hint of olives or even flowers... it seems to be fine and healthy, but we are not planning on any olives for a while... Not sure if this is typical, but no olives for us... Best of luck! JHT in Texas
Why are the leaves in my Olive Tree falling? Thank you.
Glenda B on Dec 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Tree does not seem dead it has just lost all its leaves after I brought it inside. It is with lemon & avocado trees that are doing real well inside
If this is planted in coastal Monmouth county NJ can it survive the winter if it wrapped in insulation and a tarp?
Greg B on Aug 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Greg
It is zoned 8-11 planted outside so no I don't think you stand a chance of it surviving. Especially if you have a winter like the last 2 years. If you have a rust like problem on your leaves that's fungus not pests and needs to be treated with a fungicide. It will do well outside during your spring and summer and hot housed at first frost. I would keep it out of the hot house during any suitable weather. Hope this helps
