Tree Olea europaea 'Frantoio' Frantoio Olive




Description ‘Frantoio’ is the most noted olive oil variety of Tuscany, Italy and grows more like a tree than a bush with an open and airy canopy. Ours stand at a planted height between 2.5-3.5m so they are close to their fully mature size. As a mature specimen, each specimen is gnarly and unique particularly seen through its patterned trunk. While they may throw the occasional fruit, they have been grown for ornamental purposes making them a stand-out selection for projects looking for outside pull or a point of difference.    
Mature Size 10 x 4m    
Uses These amazing Olive trees are perfect for a commercial brewery, eatery, outdoor function room or large commercial project.    
Position & Soil Ongoing maintenance of these trees is low. It prefers humus-rich soil with good drainage but will tolerate poor, low nutrient soils. It is also known to perform well in cool winters and dry heat. This variety can also accommodate coastal conditions. Size and shape will vary slightly so we suggest you see them in the flesh and select the right one specifically for your project.
