Koroneiki Olives are famed for producing a high quality oil with an aromatic and rich flavour. The fruit are also ideal as table or snacking olives.

The trees can be grown in a large pot or in the ground. The fruit they produce is small in size and they are heavy croppers. 

They fruit well in South East Queensland and an additional benefit of this variety is that they will start to fruit at a relatively young age. 

Please contact us if you have any questions about buying this fruit tree.

Tree Options / Variations

We may stock our fruit trees in a variety of options. In general, the advanced and extra-advanced trees are taller and more mature than the standard trees and will likely start fruiting sooner. If you have any questions about which is the best option for you, please contact us to discuss.

Most dwarf fruit trees are pot-friendly and can comfortably be kept to a size that suits smaller spaces like courtyards, balconies and verandas and planted out into smaller spaces.

Top Tips for Planting

  • Plant in a sunny protected position
  • Plant in well-drained soil

Top Tips for Growing

  • Olive trees benefit from an application of a nutritious all purpose fertiliser a couple of times a year
  • Consistent watering is required to maintain good moisture in the soil and not allow the fine roots to dry out - but be careful not to over water

FAQs

Can I grow olives in a pot?

Olive trees grow well in a large pot and make an attractive ornamental tree. The smaller the pot size, the smaller the tree can grow and the fewer fruit will be produced

Can I grow Olive trees if I have clay in my soil?

Growing olive trees in soil where there is clay means that water cannot drain away freely and your tree may become susceptible to root rot. Its a good idea in this situation to create a large mound and plant your tree into this to offer better drainage.
