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.)
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.
