How interesting! Olives are widely grown as landscape trees and commercially here...and I've never noticed the young fruits before (probably because they're so tall here). :>)

A few years ago we got hundreds of olives, depends if we remember to feed it lol and the weather of course.

Karen, we did a few years ago, I just remember it took a long time and wasnt worth the effort, could have been the fruit was not as ripe as it should have been?
