Taggiasca Olive Tree

+ Gift Wrapping

  • Taggiasca Olive trees make for a truly calming centerpiece for your yard that produces excellent quality rich, butter fruit that is perfect for home and artisan oil makers alike. 
  • Fruit can be harvested green for an oil that is bold and floral while later harvested fruit will result in an oil that is sweeter and light.
  • Cured fruit is sweet, buttery, and nutty in flavor.
  • Olive variety from Liguria, Italy.
  • The highly aromatic fruit begins green and ripens into a brown blushed or fully brown color.
  • Expect high yields of mild oil and heavy productivity.
  • Very compact tree, good for intensive planting and small spaces. 
  • Taggiasca Olives are self-fruitful and do not require pollination but having another variety nearby will increase yield.
  • Pollinators: Coratina, Frantoio, Leccino, Maurino, Moraiolo & Pendolino

  • Entry Size Trees: in this size pot are approximately 1 year old. These trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 18"-24" tall
  • 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.
