Fruitless Olive trees, Olea europaea 'Wilsonii', have many of the same characteristics as the Manzanillo trees and Mission Olive trees we sell except for one thing - this olive tree does not bear fruit. Moon Valley Nurseries ensures that our Fruitless Olive trees are truly fruitless. The Clark County, LV, NV Department of Air Quality, has approved our "certified fruitless strain." This certification is especially important to our customers in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona as fruit-bearing olive trees are illegal in certain counties.
At Moon Valley Nurseries, we professionally grow and nurture Fruitless Olive trees from only our best specimens on our nearly 100-acre plantation located in the hills between Temecula and Hemet in Southern California. Our Fruitless Olive trees have grown their entire lives in the hot and dry inland climate, making them a far superior choice for landscape use when compared to olive trees from the Central Valley region. Homeowners looking for a certified, truly fruitless olive tree can rest easy buying fruitless olive varieties from Moon Valley Nurseries.
This drought tolerant, medium-sized tree, is perfectly suited for a Mediterranean Southwest garden style. Make this Fruitless Olive a focal point in your landscape and install nighttime landscape lighting in and around this tree to exhibit the interesting multi-trunk structure and eye-pleasing gray/green and silver foliage.
Homeowners are sure to appreciate its easy to care for attributes. Fruitless Olive trees crave full sun and are able to tolerate poor, stony, shallow soils so you can plant this tree on a variety of landscape styles.
