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