OUR OLIVE TREE
11.   How long does it take before an olive tree will bear a satisfactory amount of fruit?
Under good conditions and modern irrigation systems, olive trees take at least 10 years before they are mature enought to yield a satisfactory harvest. The peak production years for an olive tree are between 30 and 70 years old.
