Classic, Tuscan-Style Oil for the Golden State

Why Frantoio Olive Trees?

A widely popular variety for oil and more, the Frantoio Olive Tree is second to none. Even better? The Frantoio boasts a stunningly dark, oval-shaped olive, which ripens at mid-season with a one-of-a-kind flavor you’ll love. And since this Frantoio is grown in the Golden State, specifically for California homes, it's a proven performer.

Plus, the Frantoio is one of the most versatile trees on the market. Planted in the ground, Frantoio Olive Trees reach 25 to 30 feet in height, but when they’re container-planted, they last season after season and stay a smaller, more manageable size (especially with judicial pruning). And though they perform best with a pollinator or partner tree for more fruit, Frantoios are self-compatible for producing.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

Well, for starters, you’ll get home-grown olives without the hassle. Olive Trees have fewer pest problems than other fruit cultivars, so it’s easy to ensure they thrive, indoors or out. Best of all, since each Frantoio is nurtured and well-maintained at in California before it even arrives to your door, it’s ready to acclimate to your California landscape…with the greatest possible results.

Grown and shipped in its own container, roots intact, Frantoio is ready for healthful living instantly. Order your own Cali-grown Frantoio Olive Tree today!

Pollination Info

Frantoio Olive Tree Pollination

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

Planting & Care

1. Planting: To start, plant your Frantoio Olive Tree in full sun (an area with 6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) and well-drained soil for best results. And we recommend using a pollinator for the Frantoio – the Arbequina is a good option for best fruiting results.

Whether you plant your Frantoio in a container or in the ground, dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball. Place the tree inside and backfill soil, tamping down as you do. Finally, water to settle its roots.

2. Watering: Water your young Frantoio Olive Tree each day, especially when the weather warms up in the spring. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the soil. When the soil is dry in the first two inches (use your finger to check), it’s time to water.

3. Pruning: During the first few years, just minimal pruning, in the dry season, is needed for your Frantoio. However, for indoor trees, pruning regulates fruit production and shapes the tree for easier harvest, as well as your desired size.

4. Fertilizing: Fertilizing with a nitrogen-based blend regularly is recommended for increased fruit production. Fertilize until your Frantoio starts bearing olives and apply before flowering.

5. Harvesting: If you’re wanting to harvest naturally black olives for table use, pick in November. If you need green olives, harvest them in September. No matter the color, they're delectable!

Love!

We are delighted with our new Frantoio Olive tree. It arrived on Sunday in good condition and it is acclimating well, still in its shipping pot, to summer weather in Maine. Though it is a young tree, it is robust and already showing signs of new growth. We love having this beautiful living reminder of happy visits to the Mediterranean.

Beautiful Healthy Olive Tree, Bigger Than Expected

I ordered the 2-3 ft Frantoio Olive tree in early May. It shipped quickly, arrived will packaged, very healthy, and was over three tall (above ground). It has been putting out new leaves and doing well.
