Olive tree with small fruits

Postby Mt Worth » Thu May 14, 2015 11:22 pm

Hi all
I have an olive tree about 10 year old. Each year with 10 to 20 pounds of small fruits. I know there are many sizes of olive fruits. What make me confuse is this year, on the same tree, same branch, a bunch of small fruits , like Sultana grapes, stand beside a large and only one fruit. Please seek to attached picture, and if anyone can help explain whether it is normal or something wrong with this tree. Is it because the tree in need of trace elements or fertilizer of some sort? Or this tree is now mature and start giving big olive fruit? Or may be this tree is crossed by different cultivars?
Thanks
Mt Worth
