How to grow Olive Trees
Olive Trees are perhaps the oldest cultivated tree in the world, with a history dating 100s of years to pre roman times.
Olive trees are a slow growing, long lived evergreen tree valued for their fruit and the olive oil produced from it. It is interesting to note that Olive Trees are now being used as ornamentals and as windbreaks, many vineyards now use olives as a boundary. Olive Trees were planted outside the Sydney Opera House some 50 years ago, they are still going strong.
Olive trees prefer a cold winter and a hot dry summer, they do well in South Australia and Victoria. Olive trees need a well drained soil however they do appreciate watering during summer, soak once a month in dry periods, and fertilization will help promote growth. Olives prefer full sun and will grow well in pots. To promote increased fruit size olives can be ‘thinned’ on the tree. Olives are preserved by using salt, or a saline solution, olives ‘raw’ from the tree are bitter and inedible.
When planting out a young olive tree, dig in well rotted manure and remember to stake the plant, best time to plant is in autumn, although olive trees are hardy and can be planted throughout the year. If planting during warmer months remember to water on a regular basis.
