Sikitita Olive Tree Olea europaea ‘Picual’ x ‘Arbequina’

Product Description

Olive Tree Bred in the Fields of Spain

The Sikitita Olive Tree is a choice pick for those who want the taste of Spain in their kitchen. This dwarf olive tree fruits earlier (and with sweeter flavors) than other similar varieties.

The Sikitita’s silver-green foliage and weeping structure creates stunning visual interest in any design style, indoors or out. However, this olive tree is especially beautiful in Mediterranean and contemporary garden aesthetics

This dwarf olive tree can be planted outdoors if you live in growing zones 10 or 11. For all other zones, the Sikitita Olive can be placed in a container indoors or on the patio during warmer months.

Planting and Care

1. Planting: You should plant your Sikitita in a small container where it will get full sun. Once it has reached a few feet tall, you can move it to a permanent place to grow outside (if in growing zones 10-11). Do this by digging a hole twice as wide (and just as deep) as the root ball. Place your olive tree inside and backfill the soil. For all other zones, keep your olive tree indoors or only on the patio in the warmer months.

2. Watering: Allow your Sikitita to dry out in between waterings. However, when the soil is dry (down to about the first two inches), water it deeply, ensuring the soil becomes fully saturated.

3. Fertilizing: Use a high nitrogen fertilizer, something like a 17-6-10 timed-release formula. And if your Sikitita shows signs of weeds, simply remove the weeds and as much of the weed root system as possible.

4. Pruning: Thin out young plants to 3 to 4 main branches. After blooming in spring, clip the tips of the branches. Make the cut just above the point where a pair of leaves attaches to the stem. Leave each branch at least 6 inches long, but how much longer is up to you and what will look good on your balcony or patio.

5. Pollination: Sikitita Olives are usually self-fertile. However, you will get better fruit production if you have more than one tree. Be sure to either choose two of the same variety, or if you are picking different varieties, two or more trees that bloom at the same time.

Sikitita Olive Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Sikitita Olive Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.
