General Olive Tree Information

 

Olive trees are very hardy, drought-, disease- and fire-resistant, and can live exceptionally long. (Many olive trees in the groves around the Mediterranean are said to be several centuries old.)

The older an olive tree is, the broader and more gnarled its trunk appears.

The olive is an evergreen tree. The leaves are replaced every two or three years, leaf-fall usually occurring at the same time new growth appears in the spring.

Olive trees like hot weather. Temperatures below −10 °C (14.0 °F) may injure even a mature tree. They tolerate drought well, thanks to their sturdy and extensive root system. They are considered a great "water wise" choice for drought tolerant landscapes.

 

Manzanillo Olives

"Manzanillo" or "Manzanilla", a medium-large, rounded-oval fruit, with purple-green skin that changes to deep blue-black when mature, originated in Dos Hermanas, Seville, in southern Spain. "Manzanillas" means little apples in Spanish. Known for a rich taste and thick pulp. Excellent for oil and pickles.

 

Many olive tree growers raise their trees in boxes and sell them based on the size of the box such as 24”, 36”, 48” etc. Unlike them, our trees are field grown, mature trees. The price generally depends on the age of the tree and size of the trunk. All of our trees (Large or Extra Large) all have a root ball equivalent to a 60" box.

We offer 2 different sizes/price categories. Please keep in mind that the "smallest' trees we sell are 20 years old and at least 12-14ft tall. We do not sell anything smaller. All our prices are in the ground prices. All you have to do is dig the hole.

Please note that all our trees are fruiting.
