The olive tree has been important for thousands of years and has proved to be very drought hardy. They have a thousand year life of producing fruit with only minimal care. The trees will tolerate a large range of soil conditions, preferring a neutral to alkaline soil type. If your soils are acidic, they may be easily changed to an optimal pH of 7.0-8.0 by simple methods such as the addition of agricultural lime. Olive trees like cool/cold winters and hot summers. Even though olives are evergreen trees, they still need a cool winter so they can rest to prepare for their main shooting, flowering and fruiting in the spring. For most varieties some winter frost is preferred.
