This is in a pot until I work out if we have room to put it in the ground.Have now planted this in the ground outside the fence line since I do not think too many people will steal the fruit. It is doing very well in the black clay and have even seen new growth on it.

Olive - Arbequina (Seedling)

Cam's Edible Fruits
Update: 2562 days 3hrs

Comments: -

This plant is said to set fruits early and is more suitable in warmer areas. Why did it buy it then? Well it was my husband who bought it. He knew I wanted an olive tree, so when he saw the trees at Bunnings he picked this tree out of the lot.  ( *.* )


We planted this tree on the nature strip facing north/east. It has rather survived it's first Winter quite well, I guess olive trees in general are quite tough. There's hardly any growth in height but I see a lot of flower buds forming on the tree.

Small fruit have developed and should get a small first crop this year or start next year sometime.

Height 3 Feet

Growing: In a Pot

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Question:

Found it on the clearance/half dead shelf at Bunnings, bent double with the weight of 25 little olives. The trunk was no more than about 3mm in diametre. Have begun to freeform espallier the tree, it has grown a lot these last couple of months after not doing all the much (I think the fruit stressed it, at first). As well as new growth, there are some new little buds. The trunk has at least double in size.

Planted in the front yard after digging them out of the back yard 2 years ago they had made it up to 3 meters high (alot of pruning) before being cut down to less that half height and placed in milk crates. I can't believe they all survived but luckily they did and they now seem to have stabalised and have started growing. At there feet are lots of Aloevera.
