Arbequina Olive Tree

Fast Growing Olive Tree & Best Tasting

This item is currently SOLD OUT

You may be interested in the products below




   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.

It's Easy to Plant your Arbequina Olive Tree

Specific Directions for Arbequina Olive Tree

Place your Arbequina Olive Tree in an area that receives full to partial sunlight. If kept indoors place your tree by a large sunny window. Your Arbequina Olive Tree will adapt to your natural soil even if it's sandy or heavy in clay. Your tree needs well draining soil that is never over saturated.

Allow your soil to dry to the touch about two inches between waterings. Don't over water your tree and make sure that it doesn't sit in an area of your yard that collects standing water. Fertilize your Arbequina Olive Tree every year in the early Spring and Fall. Use a slow release fertilizer that's high in nitrogen.

Every Spring Your Arbequina Olive Tree will produce beautiful flowers. Green Olives will emerge and ripen in the fall around October. Once your Olives turn a tan to dark purple color they're ready to be picked.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Arbequina Olive Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Arbequina Olive Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Arbequina Olive Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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..

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

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

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 wish I could see this olive tree flourish. It lost many leaves and I clipped off the remaining dead branches. It is now less than it's original size. It has 2 remaining branches on it with brown tipped leaves which I'm afraid will also fall off. It has a couple of new sprouting leaves on the ends. The tree is in a large planter which we moved from inside to outside where it gets @5 hours of direct sunlight a day. Any suggestions would help. I have given it miracle grow and a little ephsam salts. Thanks for following up. Linda

I purchased the 5' version of this tree in the hopes of growing my favorite variety of olives here in New England. I've only had the tree for 10 months or so but it's produced many leaves (no olives yet). From what I understand, it should be possible to keep the tree outside until the temps are consistently hitting the low 20s, and then bring it in for the rest of the winter. Apparently this lets the buds set (for olives, in the fall rather than the spring like other trees). But, olives or not, it's been a great tree

I bought my tree in the spring and am writing this in the following fall. The tree arrived healthy (great packaging!) and strong. I immediately planted it in a 7-8 gallon pot and could see new growth within a few weeks. The tree withstood Houston heat and humidity without any signs of stress and has grown nearly a foot (maybe more) taller in the time I've owned. I'm very pleased and the only problem I have now is deciding how tall I want to let it get.

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.

When we first received the tree, we had it inside near our breakfast nook by the window. It really didn't seem to be thriving however, so we took it outside, and left it on our patio. It has since started to blossom a lot better. Although the tree is still a bit young, we will probably plant the tree in the backyard, instead of trying to keep it inside, and look forward to it being a show piece in our backyard in a few years

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.

How do you take care of this olive plant in doors and how much water?
Kathleen P on Aug 14, 2014
Best Answer: The Olive tree still must have sun or a grow light, turn your tree a quarter turn every week to ensure even growth. Average room Humidity; tolerant of dry air. Water thoroughly, then allow the top 2 in of soil to dry out between watering. Never allow the soil to get soggy which can kill the tree very quickly.

I just bought an Olive tree from you about two weeks ago. I have had it for a week. I am very worried for it. It's leaves are dry and drop instantly when touched. The plant seems quite twiggy and I am concerned that it will die in a few days or will just stay dried up. What would you recommend for this tree's care? I've bought several other trees from fast growing trees this summer but this seems to be struggling to survive from the day of receipt.
Olivia on Jul 16, 2014
Best Answer: This could be a result of shipping shock. During hot summer months when trees go from direct sunlight to being placed in a box they shed their leaves to protect themselves. This is a normal process. New leaves should emerge in about 5 weeks. If the leaves curl upwards after turning brown this is a sign of under watering and your tree needs a little extra water. Be careful not to over water your tree while correcting this issue.

I ordered a 3 to 4 ft tree. when should i bear fruit?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2014
Best Answer: Most trees take about a year to get established to their new environment before they produce fruit. You should see olives in about a year of planting it. Maybe sooner.

I will have to bring the tree in for the winter months. Will there be pruning directions so the tree will be manageable to move and still fruit?
Carmine I on Jul 23, 2014
Best Answer: It has been a couple years, but I don't think that was part off the care instructions. I did get a number of olives the first year but none lasted to maturation. The second year I didn't see any fruit.

When is best time to plant the olive tree outside in Oregon?
Jean K on Jul 1, 2014
Best Answer: It's best to plant the Arbequina Olive Tree in the early Spring or early Fall, but if temperatures aren't scorching hot in the 90's or above it will be fine to go ahead and plant this tree now.

I live in zone 9 Houston TX, but some time the weather will COLD about a week, we can keep outside or we will bring in sihe house or garage?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
Best Answer: If temperatures dip below freezing temperatures. 32 and below! If you can't bring it inside, prep it for the cold by spreading mulch, hay or pine straw around the base of your tree to hold in the heat. Also you can cover your tree with a sheet to protect it from frost.

Will my 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.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


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.
