  • The Moraiolo olive tree is a variety of olive tree that is primarily cultivated for its fruit, which is used to produce high-quality olive oil.
  • This olive variety is native to Italy, particularly the regions of Tuscany and Umbria.
  • It is one of the most important olive cultivars in Italy and is known for its distinctive characteristics.
  • Moraiolo olives are small to medium-sized with a slightly elliptical shape. They are typically dark purple to black when fully ripe.
  • The Moraiolo olive tree has a moderate to low yield compared to some other olive varieties, but the quality of the oil it produces makes it a sought-after choice for growers.
  • Moraiolo olive trees are known for their good resistance to pests and diseases, which makes them a relatively low-maintenance choice for olive growers.
  • Pollinator: Pendolino

  • Entry Size Trees: These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 18"-24" tall and are approximately 1 year old
  • Primo Size Trees: Tree height ranges from 18"-36" tall and the trees are grown in a 5"x5"x12" tree pot. Primo Size Citrus trees have been grown to maximize their success and meet the demand of our growers. We grow primo size trees until they reach heights of 18”-36” tall and will ship in a new compact box. The goal with this product is to provide a top-quality tree that is not only branched nicely but also in a form factor that is much more economical to ship. Primo Size Citrus trees are pruned with intention to get you a beautifully developed canopy with proper branching starting at or above the 18” mark. 
  • 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
