If you're looking for Mediterranean flair or if you're an Olive fanatic, the Manzanillo Olive (Olea europaea 'Manzanillo') will become your prized possession. This tree will make you feel like you're lounging off the warm coast of Spain all year round.
The Manzanillo produces clusters of small, simple, charming white flowers in the summertime. At the height of its bloom, this tree looks frosted!
When autumn rolls around, expect this tree to be dripping with clusters of lovely edible green Olives. The pits are easily removed, and the fruit has excellent, meaty flesh that is about 85% pulp.
This Olive is celebrated for curing, but the Manzanillo Olive is also known for its prized fruit that creates enough oil for pressing.
The Manzanillo is self-fruiting, so you just need one for a fantastic harvest. This is a self-sufficient tree, but it will produce even more tasty Olives with a companion tree nearby.
Manzanillo Olive is a broadleaved evergreen, with branches growing upward and outward, filled with lovely foliage, shaded a quaint gray-green. The beautiful leathery leaves are long and slender.
The most unique characteristic of this tree is its slow-growing nature, creating a gnarled, twisted trunk. Over time, this tree adds character and a sense of antiquity to your landscape.
Plant it in an open field, better yet, plant a few in a line along your property edge. Just one will become the crown jewel of your front yard landscaping the entire neighborhood will be envious of!
This Olive variety does great in well-drained soil with low moisture. Tolerating poor soil and drought-tolerant, it doesn't require a lot of water, and it tolerates the heat. Water regularly to ensure the roots establish, then let nature take its course and water only if drought becomes extreme.
Once established, it can even withstand temperature drops down to about 15 degrees. It does best with full sun exposure. Thriving in USDA growing zones 8 -10.
This hardy, yet fruitful tree will add a sense of antique beauty to your landscape! Beloved for centuries, the Olive is a symbol of peace and friendship! So one of these would become a fantastic gift for a new home-owner or anniversary!
