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.





Koroneiki Greek Olive Pollination

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

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.

Cretan Olive - ???? ??? ??? ?????
I've bought many trees from this site, and mostly all of them arrived in great condition which hasn't been the case with other online nurseries. This tree arrived in great condition. I received a very small tree, the size of a plant, but it has taken off with a ton of development and is doing very well in my climate (Central FL). This olive is a prized olive with a history as rich as the culture it originates from. The island of Crete in Greece is covered with these beautiful trees and the natives, along with me, adore this tree. This company has provided top notch customer service which is hard to believe, with the way things are today in this corporate driven society. They listened to my concerns, and worked with me to ensure I was satisfied with every purchase. I plan to continue buying from this vendor and I hope they continue to have success with their nursery.
Taken at night, tree's branches have grown 3"-4"in the last two months since the purchase in Sept.

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.

Skinny-leggy
It's alive and about the only thing I can say good about it. It is the saddest looking tree I've ever seen. I expected a fuller thicker specimen. This is the skinniest leggy tree I've ever experienced. I've been very happy with other trees you have sent me but not this time. Sorry

Planting & Care



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


Koroneiki Greek Olive  Planting Diretions

There’s a reason the Greek poet Homer once dubbed Greek Olive Oil “liquid gold." Like the tree itself, the olives produced from Greek Olive Trees are some of the best in the world. This tree is long lived. Follow these directions carefully, and you will be enjoying your own Greek Olives for your entire lifetime.

Choosing a location: Choose a location that receives full or partial sun. An area that gets 6 hours or more sun per day is optimal. Make sure the location you choose is safe from strong winds, otherwise stake your young tree for protection.

Planting Directions:
1) Soil is ideal at a pH range of 5 to 8.5 and should drain well.
2) Loosen the soil in the planting area to make sure it drains well but do not add anything to the soil.
3) Dig your hole to easily accommodate the entire root system, place your tree in the hole and tamp to remove any air pockets.
4) Stake your young tree if possible to help its root system develop. Remove the stake after the tree’s trunk reaches a diameter of 1.25 inches.
5) Water your Greek Olive Tree thoroughly.

Watering: When your tree’s root system becomes established, your Greek Olive Tree will be extremely drought resistant. Until that time, water the young tree every third day for the first 2 weeks, then once every 2 weeks. After that, give your tree 1 inch of water per week for the first few months. Monitor your tree for necessary watering requirements from there.

Pruning: Prune your Greek Olive Tree to the shape you desire. Prune towards the end of winter in mid-February and in the fall. Prune out low branches and tips of stems that have grown too long but if you are looking to harvest fruit keep in mind that olives bear fruit on the previous year’s growth.

Fertilization: Fertilize your Greek Olive Tree only after planting. Use a slow-release fertilizer to boost nitrogen by at least 10 percent.

Pests: Be sure to rinse any pruning tools prior to use to avoid spreading Olive Knot. This bacterial disease is prevalent during rainy months. The oils naturally produced in olives serve as a pest repellent. Olive Fruit Flies are typically found in the Mediterranean but have been encountered in some areas primarily on the west coast. There are commercial sprays and traps available to rid the tree of this pest.

Tips:
*
Plant your Greek Olive Tree away from sidewalks to avoid stains from fallen ripe fruit.
*You can grow your Olive Tree in a large container and shape it into a Bonsai

I live in Tarpon Springs Florida and all the local olive trees are nonfruit bearing trees. Why have an olive tree if you can't have olives.

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
is the koroneiki olive tree a grafted tree?
rob k on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is a grafted tree.
Can you grow this in a pot indoors in NYC?
Abby M on Nov 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It is good for growing Zones 4 to 7 for a patio plant (which means you have to bring it inside for the Winter). Growing Zones 8 to 11 it can be planted in the ground and is cold hardy to 20 degrees F.
