  • French variety prized for both oil production and curing.

  • We can ship our "Other Edibles" (non-citrus plants) and growing accessories to most states, including Texas, Arizona or Florida. 
  • Sorry, we do not ship any items to the US Virgin Islands, Guam, Puerto Rico or to API/APO addresses, or to other countries at this time.
  • Due to agricultural restrictions, we cannot send any fruit, foliage or plants in soil to Hawaii. We can ship all other non-tree items to Hawaii, as well as Bare-Rooted Premium citrus trees. 
  • In order to insure the highest quality upon arrival, we ship on Mondays and Tuesdays
  • We ship orders to the east coast on Mondays only.
 
  • Entry size trees in this size pot are approximately 1 year old. These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 14"-16" tall, with a trunk diameter between 1/4-1/2 inch.
  • Premium trees are 2-3 years old.  These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 24"-36" tall, with a trunk diameter of  1/2 inch.
  • Within a month of delivery we suggest repotting into a larger (10-12" diameter) container.
  • Like citrus trees, olive trees appreciate a well draining soil growing medium that retains moisture and also drains well.  Provide full sun, regular feeding and good drainage to keep the tree happy and productive.
