 "Olea europaea:

Mission olives have been used in the production of olive since the days of the Spanish missions. They produce small fruit, typically of around 4.1 grams. It has the lowest flesh-to-pit ratio (6.5:1) and greatest cold resistance of any commercial cultivar. Mission olives are harvested for table use from late October through November; for oil production, they are harvested between mid-December and February. 

**This tree is not self pollinating needs another olive tree ie: 'Arbequina' in order to bear fruit**

Plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Water regularly, especially when they are flowering and setting fruit. Apply a balanced fertilizer. Always prune after fruiting. Growing a fruit or nut tree will require that you dig your hole double the diameter of the plant bag  and at least 600mm-1m deep. First cut the round underside of the plant bag before you place the tree into the hole, then slide the remaining plant bag off before you cover with soil. When you cover the roots with soil, you tamp it down as you go so you can ensure that the roots are completely touching the dirt.
