Olea Mission Olive 180MM

Olea ‘Mission Olive’ – 180MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Mission Olive. My family originated from the Mediterranean

Botanic Name: Olea europaea ‘Mission’

Tree – Heavy Cropping

I am a cultivar of European Olive bred in California by missionaries.

I feature upright stems more frost tolerance than other varieties.

My medium sized fruit is equally good for curing as it is for oil production and has a smaller pit which separates easily from the flesh.

While I can be kept small and will thrive in large pot or container I will develop into a large tree unpruned.

My fruit can be harvested and cured green or black. When fully ripe my fruit will fall to be collected from the ground.

Unpruned I tend to be multi trunked and am usually trained to single trunk as I grow.

Being incredibly hardy with dense foliage I am an effective screen and windbreak.

(Can be kept trimmed to Height: 3m Width: 2m)
