Need alkaline soil, maybe a 7ph, mine has never fruited in over 7 years, soil too acid.

My mum went and impulsively purchased this olive tree 3-4 years ago. She neglected it, didn't water it, left it in the pot for the entire time. When I moved a year ago, mum gave me the plant because she had nowhere to put it. I planted it in the ground in the corner of our property. 

Even though it was neglected, the plant sprouted flowers for us within months of being planted and gave us at least a kilogram worth of dark large olives. We left it on the tree hoping to collect them after a few more weeks...don't know what happened but they all disappeared! Would anyone know if birds eat olives? Or should I be cautious of my neighbours? lol.

Looking forward to this variety. Must water at fruiting time to ensure fruit does not drop.

Planted: 2009

Height 1 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

First Fruited: 3 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Pollination: Cross Pollination

Cross Pollinator Variety: Frantoio

When I Fertilise: Yearly

Pest Control:

Occasional leaf damage by black flies (aphids?). Need to check regularly and wipe off by hand or spray. If unchecked can damage large number of leaves. Also need to check for caterpillars which occasionally can wipe out a lot of leaves.

Sept/Oct 2009 Ist time flowering. Planted 2002. Maybe due to the plentiful amounts of fertilizer & Dolomite.  Cut off 3m growth rootstock (Manzanillo Cuttting) Oct 2009, it too was flowering but in small amounts.
