Title: Olives in Miami
Post by: davidgarcia899 on September 30, 2012, 01:24:14 PM
Has anyone had any luck getting one to produce. I have a tree of unknown cultivar that I was given by a friend that past away. I know ill never have the heart to get rid of it. But I was thinking of getting another one.

What cultivar would you guys recommend, I was thinking Arbequina

Mission, Arbequina, Manzanilla, Sevillano, Arbosana and a few others grow well up here in central FL. Maybe give a couple of those a try.

Here is a link to a good source with accurately labeled trees.
