Enjoy fresh, healthy olives, as soon as the very first year! Arbequinas are popular because of their flavor, but they also have one of the highest concentrations of healthy, antioxidant-rich oils. And even a small tree can produce 20 lbs. of olives each year. Plenty for healthy salads, recipes and incredible home-made olive oil.
Beware, not all Arbequina Olive trees are the same. Ours are started from branch cuttings, not seed. This gives you fruit several years sooner. Our growing process is more involved, but gives you a much better product. Plus, your tree is grown and shipped in it's own container with all of it's roots intact (rather than dug out of the ground when you order). So rather than recovering, your tree is growing and fruiting.
Arbequinas are very adaptable and can be grown in all areas of the United States. They’re seldom bothered by pests and can easily be grown organically in all 50 states.
Grows Indoors or Out... tolerating cold temperatures down to 12F to 14F. Plant outdoors in growing zones 8-11, and in zone 7 if blocked from northern winds. In northern states, just pot them up in a container and bring them indoors during the harshest weeks of winter. Some people grow Arbequinas indoors all year-round, as unusual house or office plants. We recommend bringing them outdoors, during the summer months, in order to get the most fruit production.
As they age, you get that unique gnarly, muscular look. Landscape Architects have fallen in love with Olive trees. Mature olive trees are sold and transplanted for $10,000 or more. What’s great is… you don’t have to spend this much, or wait very long. Arbequinas are very fast growers when planted in the ground. They are also easy to prune to a manageable size when grown in containers.
These olive trees are semi-deciduous, meaning they only drop their leaves in extreme cold. If you pot them up and bring them indoors, they keep all their leaves throughout the winter time.
Arbequinas are self-pollinating, so you only need one to produce fruit.
Olive trees have become a universal symbol for health and peace. Backyard gardeners and gift givers have fueled the demand for these trees. We will likely sell out at the end of the season. We recommend that you place your order soon, while supplies are still available.
