Botanical Name:

Olea europaea 'Arbequina'

Does Not Ship To:



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.

MY lovely Arbequina Olive that I bought in Dec. 2010, which was thriving and about 7' tall, did not make it through last winter. I live in Zone 8. I was very sorry to lose this tree, but don't plan to replace it with another one unless I keep it only on the patio

Planted my olive tree outside in a half whiskey barrel (zone 9). It was FULL OF OLIVES by the second summer. I can wait to harvest and cure them...

I bought 2 of these Arbequina olive cuttings. Zone 9, heavy clay soil. Both planting sites identically ammended with garden soil & manure, identical mulch, sunlight & water. 17 days later, 1 is already budding new leaves & looks vibrant. The other is trying to hang on, though the tips of some leaves are browning. As long as 1 survives I can replant the dead one with a cutting from the healthy one later on

The tree came in a really strong box and was delivered in excellent shape even though it had a long journey to NJ. I ran out and bought a big enough pot for it and top soil... I am so looking forward to getting my own Olives.. (The tree already is showing buds for Olives) I am very happy that I chose to go with the biggest you offer. Thanks for your advice..
December 31, 2012
I own two Arbequina Olive Trees both are thriving and growing. unfortunately neither has produced any olives. One tree was planted last fall 2010 and the other the other spring 2011. My ground is heavy clay and I had to supplement with a mixture of soil and fertilized with fruit tree spikes. We are experiencing extreme heat conditions here in Texas and the trees seem healthy. In addition to the olive trees I have planted a couple of pear trees,orange trees,peach trees all are taller then the fence but none have produced any fruit with exception of the orange trees. I have hopes for them next year

I received the olive tree and put it into a container. From my understanding, I am in a zone (7) where I could either put it into the ground or opt for a container. I think I'm right on the line for that. The reason I opted for a container is because I am afraid it will get too cold here as last winter it was unseasonably FREEZING. So, didn't want to risk losing it by planting it in-ground. It looks and is growing great! No fruiting yet, but I think it's still early for the size I ordered. Arrived well-packaged and healthy and still looks healthy. Will bring it inside when it gets too cold in the winter.

Thank you!

This is my second tree from FGT and I'm thrilled again, maybe even more than before because my tree has not gone dormant - it's December, the tree is heavily mulched outside and has new growth on it. FGT is definitely my source for trees

Lenny T on Mar 10, 2016
Something to try and a great success, especially after I did my homework and learned that flower set requires vernalization: As of a few weeks ago, after a first winter outside in Dallas, I have a twelve foot potted tree with a floral raceme in literally every leaf apex on the plant. If these flowers are all productive, I will have to stake up all the branches.

I live in zone 9. My 2 olive trees are outside all year. I've heard they don't do well in the humidity. Has anyone else found this to be true? Any success stories from people living in Florida?
Andrew D on Sep 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The Olive are not big fans of humidity. Actually if live in a dry, fair balmy area with lots of sunshine, low wind and humidity, and winter temperatures never falling below 15 degrees, then you are best to grow olives. However have heard of Olives making it pretty well in FL, just adding a tad of TLC to the Olive trees care.

when to bring inside from the cold ?
joseph a on Aug 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Our Arbequinas do ok down to the low 30's. They DO NOT like any type of freezing precipitation. The bark on young trees will split, and the branches break under anything but the lightest ice. For best continued growth, I would personally take them in around the first frost, and only move them outside when the temps reach 40 or so.
Planting and care in a pot for my deck?
lolita e on May 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: When I planted my Arbequina, I chose a pot big enough to give the tree room to grow. I mixed regular planting soil with some peat moss to give a little acid that olives and citrus like. They're evergreens and therefore always eating. They need to be fed on about a 6 week cycle and watered often enough to have moisture to dissolve and carry the nutrients up the roots and into the branches. You can tell by looking at the tree if you're killing it with kindness or starving it to death. When you care for something, you pay attention to it's needs and act appropriately.
I recently potted my tree & it is loosing it's leaves what do I need to do?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2014

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
