Fruiting

Produces Olives and Olive Oil

Fruiting olive trees make ideal candidates for the commercial or hobby orchard farmer. We offer numerous cultivars perfect for different growing conditions as well as to meet your flavor and production needs.

Some cultivars’ olives produce sweet oil and have a high ratio of flesh to pit. Other cultivars produce less oil and have a smaller ratio of flesh to pit.

Flavor can vary wildly between various cultivars. Let us show you the differences to help you make the best selection for your grove.

Healthy

Dietary Benefits

Olives are a well-known source of heart-healthy food. Olives are very high in vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants. Studies show that they are good for the heart and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer.

Ease of Care

Heat, Cold, Wind, Drought Tolerant

Olive trees make ideal candidates for food production due to their low water requirements and general tolerance to heat and cold temperature extremes.

General Growth Conditions & Characteristics

Light

Full sun

Olive trees do best with 8 hours of bright sunlight.

Soil

Well-drained, nutrient poor soil

Olive trees prefer well-drained soil and grow well even in nutritionally poor soil. They thrive in hot and rocky locations. While new plantings will do best with regular water, established trees are fairly drought tolerant and only require water occasionally.

Temperature

Heat to cold

Although olive trees do well with both higher heat and cold, winter temperatures, various cultivars react with greater (or lesser) tolerance to heat or cold. Most are hardy down to 20 or 30°F. Ask us which cultivars may be best for your growing conditions.

Growth

Slow to Vigorous

Olive trees vary in growth rate over time. Some are slow; others are moderate or even vigorous in their rate of growth. Left unattended, some cultivars may grow to 30 feet or more. But they respond well to pruning, if you wish to maintain them at a specific size. Most flower in spring or summer, and their fruit production is harvested in the fall.

Some fruiting olive trees require pollinators and others will self-pollinate. Most do best when interplanted with other fruiting cultivars. Ask us which cultivars work best with your primary cultivar and what percentage of pollinators is ideal for your orchard.

Size

10 to 30+ feet

Tree size may vary widely depending upon how much it’s been pruned historically in an established olive tree. Many are maintained at  20 (+/-) feet for orchard spacing. Some cultivars are characterized by upright branches and others by more pendulous or “weeping” branch style. Also, some trees have dense canopies, as wide as the tree is tall.

We consult on orchard planning, including selection of cultivars, spacing, installation, maintenance and harvest. Some cultivars are ideal for mass planting and mechanical harvesters. Others may respond best to manual harvest, with spacing that is prohibitive to mechanical harvesting.

Fruiting olive trees serve a variety of purposes for orchard health. For example, Frantoio are self-pollinating olive trees but also make excellent pollinators for other fruiting cultivars.
