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, has consistent productivity and self-pollinates. This variety produces small to medium-sized fruit, with a slightly nutty flavor 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 purple-black in colour.
This plant makes for an ideal addition to gardens and landscapes as an attractive specimen or shade tree. They are also used as hedging, espalier (planted across a flat wall) or in a pot.
