Q: Will this tree produce fruit (olives)? How long will that take?
Yes, these trees are capable of producing fruit. The timing is dependent on many variables (soil and watering conditions, weather, sunlight, etc). On average, these trees may begin fruiting in the first 1-3 years.
Q: Does this tree produce green olives, or black?
That's a matter of ripeness. All olives left on the tree will eventually ripen to black. Olives can be pickled at any stage of ripeness.
