Zitoun Olive Trees

Having originated in Morocco, Zitoun olive trees are famous for their drupes, which are dark red and freckled with a white coating. They are available in 15-gallon containers for both table and oil usage. Note that this tree requires more water in excessive temperatures or when planted in containers. Moreover, newly planted Zitoun will need additional water during their first growth.

Care and Maintenance

Zitoun olive trees are exceedingly versatile and thrive in ordinary, well-drained, slightly alkaline soils. Water deeply and frequently during the first few growing seasons to help the plant build a strong root system. Once established, reduce the frequency of watering; it is drought-tolerant. However, protect young or freshly transplanted plants from extreme winter weather.
