Re: [nafex] olives from seed?

Traditionally, olives are grown from cuttings.  Seedlings will vary
considerably.  The trees themselves are fairly hardy, down to about zone 7
with protection, but they need a dry, warm  climate to set and mature fruit.
 In cooler climates they are more apt to be unfruitful and may get disease.
