The Q&A Archives: olive trees

Question: will olive trees grow and produce eatable fruit in pasco county florida?

Answer: Lee,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

In your area the winters are not quite cold enough for the tree to experience enough cool vernalization weather to set fruit. However, olives may be grown as an ornamental in your area.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
