Olive - Manzanillo

Very beautiful looking Olive tree, with beautiful foliage. Loves an organic rich soil that is well draining, moderate amount of watering, and mulch. Fertilise every few months with a slow release fertiliser. Tree has grown about 2 feet in 6 months.

Very sturdy plant. No transplant shock. Only needs watering weekly - twice weekly. Has more than doubled in size since purchase. Very happy with purchase. I purchased the Frantoio as a cross pollinator (which has also thrived).

Pulled out replaced with malabar chestnut, had 3 olives in 10 long years so it paid the price.

This is the variety which produces a good crop of olives in Sydney. Flowered profusely in first year even though the plant is quite small. Recommended.

This tree has been in the ground for 7 years now and has never flowered. We are thinking perhaps it does not get cold enough to initiate flowering here on the coast. It is a lovely tree. If anyone has any tips for making olives flower please let us kno...

No flowers yet, but still early days for an olive.Easy to maintain, it has a lovely upright habit which has naturally formed a vase-shape.  It grows moderately each year, approximately a foot or so each Spring and Summer, and it copes with all the vag...
