Hello I am looking for a few different types of adult fruiting tree cuttings that have produced fruit before please. I am happy to swap with cuttings from some…
Olea genus (Olive tree). There are about 20 species in this genus, they are all long-lived, evergreen trees from Africa, Asia and Australasia. They will produce leathery, narrow to broad leaves with tiny off-white flowers that are followed by the fruit. They are frost to half hardy, in cold areas give protection. Grow in full sun with deep, fertile, very well drained soil.
Evergreens, Shrubs or Trees
Mediterranean, Africa, C.Asia and Australia
Grown for their foliage and edible fruits.
They will require a frost-free climate, they need to be grown in an environment when the summer are long and hot to ensure development and growth of the fruits.
You can propagate by seed in the autumn, or from heel cuttings in winter or from suckers.
May be prone to scale insects.
