Mar./Apr. 2009 California Country magazine
By Kate Campbell
There’s an ancient saying that those who love their grandchildren plant olive trees because the trees used to take forever to produce a crop. These days new varieties and growing practices help the trees bear fruit in just five to six years. A new guide from the University of California, the Organic Olive Production Manual by Paul Vossen, explains how to select, plant and cultivate to get the best and fastest results at home and on the ranch. $18.
