Frantoio Olive Tree

Frantoio: Translated from Italian as "Olive Mill," this classic Tuscan variety produces a very flavorful, sharp oil.

Plant Information:

  • Produce 17-22% oil content

  • Like warmer weather with half to full sun

  • High, consistent yields

  • Frantoio is self-fertile

  • Fruit is between 1.5 - 2.5 grams

Frantoio olive trees ripen in the fall and are wind-pollinated and self-fertile. This means they do not need additional plants to produce olives. However, having additional olive trees nearby will increase your olive production.

Fruit production usually starts between 2-4 years. At maturity they can grow between 20-25 feet in height with a 25 foot wide canopy. When the tree is young it's best to water daily, especially as weather warms up. Green Frantoio olives are typically harvested in September with a black table variety closer to November depending on your climate.
