Most Widely Planted Leccino Olive Tree

  • #1 Global Use
  • Delicious Fruit
  • Cold Hardier Than Other Varieties
  • Long-Lived

Grown worldwide, the Leccino Olive Tree (Olea europaea 'Leccino') is very adaptable to different soils and weather conditions. It is hardy to winters from 50 degrees to just above freezing.

In the United States, it is grown typically in Mediterranean-like Zones 8-9, but gardeners have successfully grown it in some parts of Oregon and the Northwest. 

For cold winter Zones, try growing it in a container. Dropped olives might stain concrete, so give it a prized position in a mulched bed. Then, simply harvest and bring it indoors for the winter. The Leccino is a great variety that is a bit more cold-hardy. Wonderful news if you never thought you could grow an olive tree.

The delicious fruit is used to make fine oil, and Leccino olive oil is highly prized. Try brining them in a solution to blacken them up, or enjoy them fresh as green olives for table eating.

This plant grows naturally as a tree, not a lower-limbed shrub like other olive varieties. A quick grower and producer, Leccino often delivering the first small harvest after only two years. You'll enjoy a full commercial harvest in 6-8 years.

As you know, Olive trees have a rich history. Healthy olive oil has been used in cooking and beauty products for thousands of years. This is a symbolic tree, as well. An olive branch is a representation of peace, and the fruit are symbols of prosperity.

You'll love it for it's beautiful form. Plant one as a specimen, or a dozen for a sellable harvest of delicious oil or table olives.

We only have a few of these trees available. Order yours before we sell out!
