Why Olive trees cannot be grown from seeds?

Olive trees can be grown from seeds. However, the propagation by seed is not recommended for commercial use, because the varieties of olives may differ significantly from the variety of the seed. Moreover, the plants-seedlings are characterized by very long period of juvenility, resulting in remarkable delay of fruition.

Do Olive trees flower?

Yes, olive trees do flower. In most cases, the period of flowering is during April-June.

Do Olive trees lose their leaves in winter?

No, olive trees are evergreen and they do not lose their leaves in winter. However, all evergreen trees constantly renew their leaves, meaning they gradually drop all of their leaves and produce new ones throughout a period of 6-14 months.

Are Olive trees self-fertile?

Most varieties of olive trees are self-fertile, meaning that you can get fruit by having just one tree. However, there are some varieties of olive trees that are not self-fertile.

Are Olive trees frost resistant?

They are frost resistant to some extent, but they cannot tolerate very low temperatures for a long time. Olive trees originated in the Mediterranean region, where the winter is mild and the temperature rarely drops below 20 °F (-7 °C). In general we can say that the olive tree should not be cultivated commercially in areas where the temperature often drops below 20 °F (-7 °C).
