Olives

Raintree offers cultivars excellent for fruit and olive oil production.

Olive trees have been cultivated for 4,000 years. A single tree can live for many hundreds of years. The olive branch has long been an international symbol of peace. Olive trees are hardy down to 15F and like dry climates with hot summers. Outside they can grow to 20' or more.

However, they also grow very well indoors in a pot. The upright growing trees have narrow leaves are a beautiful gray green in color and the blooms are a creamy white.
