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 know.

Olive - Manzanillo (Grafted) 7/10

HomegrownHeddibles1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2932 days 7hrs

Comments: -

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 vagaries of wind, sun, cold, heat, drought & wet that it faces in its pot by the citrus tree bed.

When we've set up the 3rd orchard bed, it will be planted out to provide some protection to the house from the afternoon summer sun.

The fruit can be harvested when green or black (I prefer black olives), and are better suited to pickling and eating that oil production.

If we have the space for a second olive tree, I will get one that is better for oil production, so we can have the best of both worlds.

THolben's Edible Fruits
Update: 2594 days 3hrs

Comments: -

This is the olive grown by many gourmet table olive farmers due to flesh/pit ratio, lovely flavour, easy to grow and prepare for eating. Although ours haven't fruited yet (we haven't had them long enough), I am very pleased to report that they are growing very well in our Sydney climate and our backyard's microclimate/soil (Como 2226, near Sutherland). Sandy soil (~50cm deep) on bedrock/clay base was prepared following Olives Australia guidlines, www.oliveaustralia.com.au.

We have only watered once a week for first 3 weeks, then let all the Winter rain take over for settling roots in. Expect to water during fruiting, and prune every 2 years to open vase kept at max 3m.

Will add fruiting details when that happens, and will post back if any watering/pruning/pest issues arise.

Question:

Does anyone else in Sydney have experience with olives? Do you have tips or experience to share?
