Delicious Olives for Snacking and Cooking
Why Koroneiki Olive Trees?
Renowned for producing large crops of fruit, the Koroneiki Greek Olive Tree is like having a piece of the Greek Isles, right in your backyard or on your patio. And when it's container-grown, it will remain compact, measuring 15 to 20 feet at full maturity.
But what truly sets the Greek Olive apart? The tree itself produces small, aromatic, cream-colored flowers amid shiny evergreen leaves, along with full-flavored olives that are healthful as well as delicious. But its best feature is its ability to thrive without much effort, so no green thumb is no problem.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Greek olives someday?
A more slender habitus than the accompanying arbequina, but the silvery undersides of the leaves bring me at least part of the way back to Greece. Arrived in excellent condition in an unsustainably small pot, doing well since repotting in a larger container.
Recieved my tree today and it arrived in perfect condition! I'm so excited to see it start growing, hoping I can pick up where they left off! Thank you so much. Such a great company.
Tree looks great! Can’t wait to watch it grow!

Alive, but rather more of twigs than trees....
These olive plants are alive, but are exceptionally spindly things, about 2 ft tall but one only two leaves before a little cluster at the very top. Other items we’ve received have been go from FGT, these were disappointing.
We're sorry to hear that your olive trees were so underwhelming! They are a bit sparse coming out of the winter months, but fertilizing and giving them some time to acclimate and they will fill in quick!
Planting & Care
Like the tree itself, the olives produced from Greek Olive Trees are some of the best in the world...and this tree is long-lived. But follow the below directions carefully, and you will be enjoying your own Greek Olives for years to come.
1. Planting: Choose a location that receives full or partial sun - any area that gets 6 hours or more sun per day is optimal. When you're ready to plant, dig your hole to easily accommodate the entire root system, place your tree in the hole and tamp to remove any air pockets. Also, we do recommend you stake your young tree to help its root system develop. Remove the stake after the tree’s trunk grows wider. Finally, water your Greek Olive thoroughly.
2. 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 light watering (about 30 seconds with a hose) each week for the first few months. Monitor your tree for necessary watering requirements from there - if the soil is dry down to around 2 or 3 inches, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: Prune your Greek Olive Tree to the shape you desire. Prune in mid-February and in the fall, removing low branches and tips of stems that have grown too long.
Tip: Keep in mind that olives bear fruit on the previous year’s growth, so only a light pruning is necessary!
4. Fertilization: Fertilize your Greek Olive Tree only after planting. Use a slow-release fertilizer to boost nitrogen.
Tips: Plant your Greek Olive Tree away from sidewalks to avoid stains from fallen ripe fruit. You can also can grow your Olive Tree in a large container and shape it into a Bonsai.
