Beloved Self-Fruitful Olive Tree

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. And the Manzanillo Olive is known for its prized olives that create enough oil for pressing.

The Manzanillo Olive is self-fruiting, so you just need one to keep it pollinated. This self-sufficient tree produces both male and female flowers, but it will produce even more tasty olives with a companion plant nearby. When fall rolls around, expect this tree to burst with clusters of lovely edible green olives.

The pits are easy to remove, and the olives have excellent, meaty flesh that are about 85% pulp. This olive is celebrated for making excellent olive oil or for curing.

This broadleaved evergreen doesn't just offer olives, though. It also branches upward and outward, with lovely foliage shaded a quaint gray-green. Beautiful leathery leaves are long and slender.

The Manzanillo Olive produces clusters of small, simple, charming white flowers in the summertime. At the height of its bloom, this tree looks frosted with blossoms.

One of the most unique characteristics of this tree is its slow-growing nature creates a gnarled, twisted trunk. Over time, this tree will add 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.

The Manzanillo Olive does well in well-drained, low-moisture soil. And this drought- tolerant tree doesn't require a lot of water, and it tolerates the heat. And once established, it can even withstand temperature drops down to about 15 degrees. It does best with full sun exposure.

This hardy, yet fruitful tree will add a sense of antiquity to your landscape. Order yours today to get started on your very own olive grove!
