A Bit More

With its strong, grey trunk and graceful canopy of olive-green leaves, Olea europaea ‘Manzanillo’ is a stalwart tree in Mediterranean landscapes. Living to over 150 years, the ‘Manzanillo’ is a self-fruitful producer of good quality black olives and one of the most commonly planted commercial  varieties. Beyond its fruit, this statuesque evergreen, which grows 25-30’ tall and wide (and wider with age), acts as a regal anchor in the garden. Its well-formed, silver-green crown makes this olive a wonderful shade tree, but be mindful of the pollen in the spring, which is a known allergen. Tolerant of drought and a variety of soil conditions, this olive thrives in heat. Plant in full sun and use this wonderful olive tree in Tuscan, Spanish, and contemporary gardens.
