Olea 'Frantoio' is a tree that is fast-growing and crops well. This tree is acclaimed as one of the best varieties in oil production and is commercially grown in many olive-growing areas. This plant is high, consistent productivity and self pollinates. This variety produces small to medium-sized fruit, with a slightly nutty flavour when pickled. Those fruits set early in March, and ripens gradually through the year til September and so allows for a longer harvest. When mature, the fruit comes as purple-black in colour.
This plant makes for an ideal addition to garden and landscapes as an attractive specimen tree or shade trees. They are also used as hedging, espalier (planted across a flat wall) or in a pot.
