Olive trees. Are they grafted or from seeds?

The olive trees that we sell are propagated by culture tissue. They are not propagated by any other method, such as grafting, seedlings, or air layering.

Not all tree types can be propagated by culture tissue.

So how long would it take for my olive tree to produce olives?

It could take three to eight years for your olive tree to produce olives.

The time it takes for an olive tree to produce olives can vary depending on several factors, including the specific variety of olive tree, environmental conditions, and cultural practices. On average, it can take anywhere from three to eight years for an olive tree to start bearing fruit.

In the first few years after planting, an olive tree focuses on establishing its root system and growing vigorously. During this period, it typically does not produce significant fruit. Once the tree reaches maturity, which is usually around six to eight years, it begins to bear olives.

It's important to note that olive trees are known for their longevity and can continue to produce olives for many decades. With proper care and maintenance, an olive tree can provide a consistent harvest year after year.

What is culture tissue?

Tissue culture, also known as micropropagation or plant tissue culture, is a method used for propagating plants in a laboratory setting. The technique involves growing plant cells, tissues, or organs in a controlled environment, such as a nutrient-rich agar medium, under sterile conditions.
