Care and Maintenance

Zitoun olive trees are exceedingly versatile and thrive in ordinary well-drained, slightly alkaline 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 or freshly transplanted plants from winter weather extremes.
