The Most Widely Planted Olive Tree in the World!

Olive trees have a rich history. The oil from olives has been used in medicine, sports, cooking and beauty products for thousands of years. The branches are symbols of peace, the fruit symbols of prosperity.

The Leccino Olive Tree (Olea europaea 'Leccino') is planted all over the olive growing parts of the world. It is very adaptable to different soils and weathers. It likes winters below 50 degrees but above freezing. In the US it is grown typically in Mediterranean-like zones 8-9 but has excelled in some parts of Oregon and the northwest. It can also be grown in a container and brought indoors for those in harsher winter climates, so if you never thought you could grow an olive tree, you might want to give Leccino a try.

The fruit is used to make fine oils. Leccino olive oil is highly prized. They are also great fresh or brined for table eating. This is an olive tree that wants to be a tree, not a shrub like so often is the case with other olives.

Leccino is a quick grower and producer, often delivering the first small harvest after only two years and a full commercial harvest in 6-8 years.

Plant one for its beauty or a dozen for a sellable harvest. Whether you want it for its beautiful form, delicious oil or table olives, to harvest or simply admire, we know that you will love it!

We only have a few of these healthy 3 to 4 foot trees ready to go right now and this is a good time to plant. Order yours before we sell out!

  • The most widely grown olive in the world
  • Handles cooler winters better than other olives
  • Hardy and long-lived
