Fast Growing Olive Tree & Best Tasting

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 20F. 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.

Arbequina Olive Tree Pollination

Arbequina Olive Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Arbequina Olive Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

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..
January 1, 2013
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.

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 live in so cal and have ordered two of these trees from at two different times.

the first, ordered about 9 months ago, was a thinner than a pencil and barely met the minimum specified order height. plus, it was so crooked i didn't think it would ever grow straight.

after numerous experiements i finally forced the 'trunkette' to conform to a metal rod for a few weeks. that helped. it's still crooked but not as dramatically as when it first arrived and it has figured out how to grow branches so it's balanced.

i gradually gave the trunk more and more freedom from staking (we get 50mph santa ana winds regularly here) so it could adapt to wind without being blown into the pacific ocean. it's been unstaked for the past 6 months or so.

it now has a proper trunk, is almost 6 feet tall, has many branches with many leaves, and.... IT HAS BUDS! unless disaster strikes i'm going to have olives this year, and lots of them judging by the number of buds.

none have opened yet (it's nearing the end of february) so i don't know what the flowers look like or how long it takes to mature from a flower to an olive, but i'm pretty excited.

after that first one started look decent, i ordered a 2nd one. it was much taller and straighter than the first but also had a thin trunk. i wouldn't call this one pathetic, but it's far too thin to keep the top off the ground unless it's (loosly) staked

that one didn't appear to do anything after planting. it doesn't look weaker or sickly but the trunk is no taller and no thicker than when it arrived. nevertheless, it too has olive buds.

i'm not sure how that's going to work for this tree because the weight of those olives could be testing my staking skills for a while.

but i'm obviously pretty happy with my olive trees. i'm in the process of leveling some more of my land so i can plant another 10-20 of these trees, if all continues to go well with my first two trees.

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

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Arbequina Olive Tree

Arbequina Olive Tree Planting Diretions

The Arbequina Olive Tree is small, brown plant which takes its name from the village Arbeca located in Catalonia. The olives are an important part of the economy in this small village along with almonds, cereals, pears, peaches and apples. With one of the highest concentration of oils, the Arbequina Olive Tree is mainly used for olive oil production although they are also served as table olives. As the trees are typically small with weeping branches, the olives are relatively easy to handpick making it popular amongst growers in various regions of Spain and regions in the southern US.

The size of the tree means it is suitable for dense planting. The Arbequina Olive Tree is also very popular with consumers given its unique flavor, which is quite peppery as well as the health benefits associated with it. Many people like to use olive oil in cooking. The Arbequina Olives change color during the ripening process, going from a light green to pink before finally becoming a brown to purple shade. The olive oil derived from the Arbequina Olive Tree varies in color from green to a golden yellow depending on when the olives are harvested.

Location: Arbequina Olives make great additions to balconies, patios and even indoors due to their ability to live well in containers.

Planting Instructions: You should plant your Arbequina Olives in a small container. Once it has reached a few feet tall, you can move it to a permanent place to grow. Do this by digging a hole twice as wide as the root ball. Place the Olive tree inside and cover with soil. They can also be moved to larger pots with great success.

Watering: Allow Olive trees to dry out a bit in between waterings, never allowing the soil to become saturated. When the soil is dry in the first two inches, it’s time to water.

Fertilization: Use a high nitrogen fertilizer, something like a 17-6-10 timed release would be perfect.

Weed Control: If your Arbequina Olives shows signs of weeds, simply remove the weeds and as much of the weed root system as possible. You can choose a common pesticide available in most stores if you feel the problem is out of control or simply keep removing the weeds until they are no longer a problem.

Pests and Disease: The only pest most balcony or patio olive growers need to worry about is scale, which is easy to treat with insecticidal soap or BioNeem. Spray the entire tree according to the package instructions. If your tree is indoors, be sure to choose an insecticidal soap approved for indoor use.

Pruning: Thin out young plants to 3-4 main branches. After blooming in spring, clip the tips of the branches. Make the cut just above the point where a pair of leaves attaches to the stem. Leave each branch at least six inches long, but how much longer is up to you and what will look good on your balcony or patio.

Pollination: Arbequina Olives are wind pollinated, and generally self-fertile. However, you will get better fruit production if you have more than one tree. Be sure to either choose two of the same variety, or if you are picking different varieties, two or more trees that bloom at the same time.

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 I treat black bugs that look like little black spots?
D Faye S on Jun 13, 2016

Start by putting on gloves you can use soap and water to remove as many as you can.If you do not they can get out of hand and multiply very quickly.(It happened to me). After you remove as many as possible spray the tree with an anti scale spray to kill the males and left overs as well as to keep them from coming back.

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.

how do you prune an olive tree ?
michael t on Oct 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It’s best to prune your olive trees in the late winter or early spring. Remove any dead or damaged branches with a sterile and sharp pair of loppers or hand pruners. Keep in mind that olive trees only produce fruit on branches that are at least a year old, so it might be better to wait until after your trees have fruited to prune them.

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.
Are they green or black olives?

BEST ANSWER: All olives start as green, and then will turn to dark colors when ripening. Mostly, a dark purple/purple-brown color when ripe.
