Olive trees can be grown in pots but choose the largest pot or rather a half wine barrel. A grafted variety will fruit within a few years as opposed to a seedling which can take up to 8 years. The following link provides a great source of information regarding suitable types. http://www.oliveaustralia.com.au/About_Olive_Trees/Olive_Cultivars/olive_cultivars.html
