Hardy and Hearty Growth in California

Why Mission Olive Trees?

Prized for its versatility and use in pickling, as well as oil production, the Mission Olive Tree is an ideal pick for your own at-home orchard. Even better? The Mission boasts one of the smallest pits and greatest cold resistance of any cultivar in California. Plus, since it's grown in California, it performs well in your California landscape.

Basically, the Mission is second to none when it comes to adaptability and a multitude of uses. Planted in the ground, Missions reach 20 to 30 feet in height, but when they’re container-planted, they last season after season and stay a smaller, more manageable size for indoor areas. Best of all, it’s strong and vigorous, so it doesn’t take much to ensure this tree thrives.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

For starters, buying this variety means the reward of constant productivity and table olives, oil and more home-grown, all without hassle. And since each Mission is nurtured and well-maintained before it arrives to your door, it’s ready to acclimate to your landscape. It's Golden State grown for your Golden State home, tailored specifically for your climate and needs.

Your Mission is grown and shipped in its own container, roots intact, so it’s ready for healthful living right away. Order your own California-bred Mission Olive Tree today!

Love my olive tree!

This tree came in great shape and has been adjusting well. I have had great luck with the customer service, and lots of great info on care for my plants.

Very surprised to have purchased what I thought would be slightly more 'tree like.' Instead can confirm with the other recent review, this is a branch or a stick with low foliage. This is not what other, earlier reviews received it seems like. I called in to ask about the size of the shipping pot, she said around 9inches diameter, so get a 10inch pot. This is what I would have expected. Now I have to pivot for a different pot after buying this 10 inch.

I purchased a 2-3 ft Mission Olive tree. What arrived was a tiny one stem plant with very very little foliage. Buyer beware! The “tree” looks nothing like the photos on the website.

trees seemed ok, but didn't survive the winter

I live in zone 8, so I know I'm borderline for Olive trees. After doing some research a few cultivars were listed as more cold tolerant than others. Based on that I bought two Mission olive trees and one Arbequina. Initially they all seemed to do well, but we had a few sub-freezing nights (about 25-28 F) afterward the mission trees shriveled and died. The Arbequina lost a few leafs, but seems to be doing fine. So if you're concerned about cold for outdoor planted olives, I give a strong reccomendation for the Arbequina, not so much the Mission.

Easy (for me) to grow indoors

This has been growing continually indoors since I received it, now on its second winter. Been pretty easy to care for, unlike two Koronekis I've failed with.
