Mediterranean Olive Product Details

Botanical Name: Oleo europaea

Height: 8' - 10' if planted in containers; larger if grown in suitable climate.

Depth: Plant on the south or west side of a home or building. The warm wall will accelerate the ripening of the fruit.

Sun/Shade: Full sun.

Pollinator: Self-pollinating.

Color: Creamy white flowers.

Foliage: Leathery, long leaves up to 3" long. Gray-green above and silvery gray-green beneath plant.

Fruit: Small oblong, plumlike green fruit ripening to black. This is considered a medium-sized olive.

Form: Tender fruit.

Flower Form: Small blooms develop in the axils of the alternate leaves.

Soil Requirements: Well-drained soil.

Growth Rate: Moderate.

Comments: The olive tree is a valued ornamental evergreen tree. Can become quite large in its natural habitat (southwest) with the trunk becoming intriguingly irregular and gnarled. The olive is self-fruitful and will bear small, plum-shaped, green fruit beginning in late summer and ripening to black in early- to mid-fall.

Perfect
Reviewed By: Enza (Glenview, IL)
I was so pleasantly surprised with I received this....it was about 8 inches tall (taller than I expected) and a nice deep green, very healthy. I am in zone 5 so keeping it inside, and its doing very well in a south facing window. They need LOTS of sun, I had it in a east facing window at first and it started losing color. Doing well now though. Very happy!

awesome
Reviewed By: Frank (Milton, FL)
Bought this tree 3 yrs ago and planted it in a large patio pot. And now, as advertised, it is producing it's first crop of olives. The tree is 6' tall and looks fantastic. What an awesome addition to our collection and landscape!

First time with gurneys
Reviewed By: Ray Schipani (Lake Placid, Florida)
Ordered the Med Olive trees last April. They arrived very small 3-4 inch plants, hard to start some of them died. Gurneys replaced them the next planting season, these were 8-10 inch plants. Started growing like crazy, and right on thru the winter. 5 months and they are already between 3 and 4 feet high. When Gurney guaranties they sincerely mean GUARANTEE! They are the best.

Did Not Do Well
Reviewed By: Kim (Dallas, Georgia)
Ordered this last spring, plant it, and brought in it before freezing temps started in Georgia. It died. Maybe I should have not brought it inside and tried planting it outside. Gurneys is sending me a replacement and this spring and I am going to try planting this one outside next to the house on south or west side of house and see how it does.

I was very pleased that Gurney's sent tree at appropriate time. It was packed well, still damp and healthy. I have placed a second order since receiving the one tree trial order.
