Olive Trees in Florida

May 18, 2013

University of Florida extension agents believe olive trees are good idea in the Florida climate. Not only are they productive, but they require little irrigation once established.

Of course, the trees look like the Mediterranean, and olives can be of course eaten or pressed for oil.

Florida agronomists recommend self-fertile cultivars like ‘Arbequina’, ‘Mission’, or ‘Manzanilla’; planting more than one will increase production.

They need a sunny area and well-drained soil, and will produce in three years.
