Will these actually produce fruit in our climate?
They will, but don't think about eating any from the tree. They're poisonous.
Have them in Asda Ednburgh Chesser., Thought at first they were bay trees at first.

Mine does but at strange times of the year.
I bought two that were about 2 ft tall from Tesco for £3 each and had them 2 years.

Olea europaea, Olive tree - Care Advice

In areas where the minimum winter temperatures are between -2?C and -5?C, … In areas where the minimum winter temperatures are between -2?C and -5?C, olive trees require no winter protection and will even tolerate drops down to -7?C for short periods, providing the daytime temperature rises sufficiently. In areas of lower winter temperatures, your olive tree can be protected with several layers of horticultural fleece wrapped around the trunk and crown of the tree.Like many plants grown in pots, olive trees have not yet evolved to tolerate frozen roots; if this happens, they can suffer drought through not being able to take up water or worse still, the roots will be damaged which can result in subsequent poor growth or even death of the tree.But fear not! This can be prevented by adding several layers of bubble plastic to the inside of the pot when re-potting the plant or simply add layers of bubble plastic to the outside of the pot and secure with twine (not quite as attractive, but just as effective).

Eh? Poisonous olive tree?
Certainly not poisonous just very bitter until they are cured or sun dried on the tree.
What use are trees with only 2 olives?

​They're not poisonous, just taste awful straight from the tree. Need to be soaked in brine before you would want to eat them. Very easy to do but takes a while!

I've had one for about 3 years - it did produce fruit last yesr, but really small ones. I've had another 2 die over winters - they don't seem to mind the cold, but can't handle really wet soil for prolonged periods.
mine is two years old and currently has fruit. but the fruit are the size of them silver balls you put on cakes. and I'm certain they won't grow mo more as they have started to ripen. and u can't eat them as the contain impurities which you have to soak out.
