Pendolino olive trees are famous for their pendulous branching habit, particularly well suited for manual cultivation. Planter fruit yields highly regard this type to pollinate a broad range of cultivars, including table and oil varieties. This slow-growing tree has a lovely weeping habit and may grow to reach around 20 feet tall throughout its life. In warmer climates, this tree grows like magic.
Pendolino olive trees are exceedingly versatile and thrive in ordinary, slightly alkaline, well-drained soils. Just water profoundly and often over the first few growing seasons to help the plant build a strong root system. Once established, lessen the frequency of application; it is drought tolerant. Yet, protect young plants (or freshly transplanted Pendolino) from winter weather extremes.
