  • 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. 
  • This variety is self-pollinating

  • Within a month of delivery, we suggest repotting into a larger (10-12" diameter) container.
