Barouni Olive Trees – 50mm pots
Our Barouni olive trees are quality commercial stock grown in a professional nursery in south-east Queensland. The trees are 5-6 months old, 15-20cm tall are sun hardened and ready to plant into a larger pot.
Also known as Uovo di Piccione, Barouni produces a large table fruit (7-9g) that is usually pickled green. It is adaptable to both warm to cold climates and is very cold tolerant. It produces medium yields and ripens mid/ late season. The variety originated in Tunisia. It is a small spreading tree that is suited for hand picking.
We suggest that initially you plant the olive trees into larger pots and grow them on for three to four months before planting in the garden. In the pots, we recommend only using premium potting mix with some added controlled release fertilizer (Osmocote/ Troforte etc). Garden soil is not suitable for use in pots.
Once the plants reach around 40 cm tall they are ready to plant in the garden, you will need to keep weeds away from the tree and initially water every couple of days or so to ensure that the roots are kept moist. Mulching around the plant and protecting it with a tree guard is recommended.
We only send trees on Monday to ensure they arrive at their destination before the weekend.
Please note: due to quarantine restrictions plants cannot be sent to Northern Territory, Tasmania or Western Australia.
