Itrana Olive Trees originate from the region of Lazo in Italy. The round, medium-sized olives grown on these trees are characterized by a fresh grassy aroma. With a peppery taste and a citrusy touch, they are mainly used to produce table olives, which can be served as appetizers or used in various culinary dishes. The rich quality of the oil pressed from Itrana olives is highly valued around the globe.
Itrana Olive Trees grow vigorously upward to a notable size, donning a compact crown while densely covered with large elliptical-shaped leaves. Maturing might be a little late (November-December) and staggered, but you can expect high yields. The red wine color of the olives with white dust speckles indicates that the fruit is ready for harvest.
Itrana olive trees are not high-maintenance because they adapt to different growing regions. They grow well in most average, well-drained, and slightly alkaline soils. Their erect and glossy thick form upon growth makes them best for multiple landscape applications. The best part about growing them is their resistance to cold and most common olive pests. However, young plants still need protection from extreme cold temperatures and olive flies.
