Californian Queen ( UC13A6) Olive Trees – 50mm pots
Our Californian Queen 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.
The Californian Queen produces a very large table fruit (9-11g). It is a hardy vigorous tree that produces medium yields and can be pickled either green or black. It was originally developed at the university of California from an open pollinated seedling of the Egyptian variety Tafahi.
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.
