Olea europaea 'Fruitless' (Wilson Fruitless Olive) - This is an evergreen tree with narrow gray foliage, which grows to 25 feet tall by as wide. It tends to have a more spreading habit than 'Manzanillo' and with much narrower leaves giving the plant a more airy feeling. This is a fruitless selection that produces little if any mature fruit. Plant in full sun. Olive trees have a better appearance if planted in deep, rich soil. Heat and drought tolerant once established. We have grown this cultivar for many years and we have been told that this plant is likely the same plant as the cultivar 'Wilsonii' - it has narrower leaves than Swan Hill Olive.  The information provided on this page is based on research we have conducted about this plant in our nursery's library, from what we have found about it on reliable online sources, as well as from observations in our nursery of crops of this plant as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Olea europaea 'Fruitless' (Standard).
