Nature Hills offers several evergreen olive oil trees for the production of olives or olive oil for home use. Generally speaking, olive trees are easy to grow, but the planting location is critical. These trees should be planted in well-drained soils and in full sun. Pollinator trees will increase fruit production; they will produce on their own, but not as heavily. The Arbequina and Koroneiki olives will pollinate each other, so planted together, you will get more fruit. Note: Plant away from paved areas as fallen fruit may cause staining.
The Arbequina Olive and Koroneiki Olive are smaller statured plants so they will fit into a smaller space than most fruiting olives. Olive trees can tolerate radical pruning, but it is best to prune after the rainy season in your area. Olives generally fruit on last year’s growth so heavy pruning will reduce the fruit crop.
