Italian Olive Tree Produces Tons of Olives

Easily Grow Your Own Olives
Add a taste of the Mediterranean to your favorite dishes with this Italian Olive Tree. Plump purple-green olives are delicious when cured and eaten as table olives, but there are several ways to get the most out of the delicious fruit.  They add a special touch to salads and pasta dishes. You can enjoy them year-round by canning them or making your own olive oil.  Expect to get anywhere from 1 to 5 lbs. of olive oil each year per tree, once mature. (That's huge savings when you compare the cost of store-bought oil.)

Picturesque Tree
The Italian Olive has dark gray-green leaves and grows in a semi-pendulous form. During the spring, the tree produces small white, fragrant flowers which gradually set into plump, juicy fruit that are oval and medium-sized. Olives ripen gradually and the tree will keep producing so that you will have olives that are ready for harvesting from late September to late December. Italian olives are easily harvested by placing a sheet beneath the branches and shaking each bough, or the whole tree if potted.  

Grow Anywhere in the US
This Italian Olive tree is a hardy tree.  It will thrive outdoors in Zones 8-11.  If you reside in Zones 4-11, you can place them in a container to enjoy inside during the winter. They prefer full to partial sunlight, in soil with good drainage.  This tree is self-fertile, which means that it does not require an accompanying tree to set fruit, although, you'll get a much bigger harvest with more than one tree for cross-pollination.

Italian Olive Tree Pollination

Italian Olive Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Italian Olive Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Italian Olive Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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 Italian Olive Tree 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 Italian Olive Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Is the Italian olive tree an evergreen or deciduous?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I couldn't tell you. The tree did not survive one season. I failed to get the insurance so they told me I was SOL.
