Best Tasting Olives on Fast Growing Tree 

Fresh Healthy Olives
Arbequinas are popular because of their flavor, but they also have one of the highest concentrations of healthy, antioxidant-rich oils. You can get up to 20 lbs. of olives each year to enjoy in your salads and add to your favorite recipes.  The Arbequinas are used in some of the finest (and expensive) olive oils sold at grocery stores. Save money while reaping all of the healthy benefits of this delicious olive.

Grows Anywhere
Arbequinas are very adaptable and can thrive in all areas of the United States. They're seldom bothered by pests and will easily grow organically no matter where you live.  You can grow Arbequinas indoors all year-round.  These olive trees are semi-deciduous, meaning they only drop their leaves in extreme cold. Grown indoors, they'll keep all their leaves throughout the winter

They'll tolerate cold temperatures down to 20F. Plant outdoors in growing zones 8-11, and in zone 7 if blocked from northern winds. In northern states, place them in a container and bring them indoors during the harshest weeks of winter, and move them outdoors during the summer months. This will ensure the highest level of fruit production.    

Arbequinas are self-pollinating, so you only need one to produce fruit.

Interesting Appearance
Olive trees have become a universal symbol for health and peace. Backyard gardeners, landscape architects, and interior decorators relish in the unique form it takes as it ages.  It's been described as having a gnarly, muscular look. Mature olive trees are sold and transplanted for $10,000 or more. You don't have to spend this much or wait very long. Our Arbequinas are fast growers and easy to prune to a manageable size whether grown outdoors or inside in containers.

Order Now
Beware, not all Arbequina Olive trees are the same.  Our trees are started from branch cuttings, not seed, giving you fruit several years sooner. While the process is more involved than most growers, it gives you a much better product. Your tree is grown and shipped in its own container with all of its roots intact - as opposed to bare root. So rather than recovering, your tree is ready to grow quickly and fruit because it doesn't have to start over in its new environment. Place your order soon, while they're 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.

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 fast-growing-trees.com 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.

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.

When does it fruit?
DJDeal on Jun 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can harvest them in Oct-Nov, and I would give them 2-3 years before they start to produce.
I am purchasing this as an indoor tree -- sort of as a decorative item for my living room, which gets LOTS of natural light. Think of it as a substitute for the fiddle fig trees that are so common. I don't particularly care one way or another if it ever produces olives. Will this work well for what I intend? Does anyone else have this strictly indoors for decorative purposes? I do have a balcony that I could bring it out in the summertime, but I would prefer keeping it potted in my living room at all times. Thanks!
kevin s on Feb 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kevin,
I've had 2 Arbs in the past 4 yrs. The 1st. didn't last a year inside. F-G-Ts replaced it.( Buy the insurance).
I usually leave mine outside until the temps fall below freezing here in the laurel highlands of Pa. They are a hardy tree that can withstand some serious weather. I have left mine out in blazing sun, heavy, rain storms, high winds and light frost...not a problem, till I bring it in, in the late fall! It goes into serious shock and loses leaves and looks like its dying. This is March and mine is still losing leaves, but new ones are growing and the trunk is still a healthy green. It has a few dead limbs that I will prune in a few weeks before it goes back outside.This seems to be the norm. This is a tree that wants and needs to be outside...not a fern, or house plant!
They aren't cheap and do take some care...buy a big pot...drill holes in the base..add a few #3 stones to the base for the tree roots to rest atop. Don't over water indoors. I've even added coco mulch to my potting medium. My Arb has yet to produce any fruit, but is the norm for a single young tree. If and when it does bare fruit ..they will stain what they land on!

Sorry to be long winded, These are beautiful trees!..In full bloom outside!..not so great inside!!!
I'm kicking around buying another for a mate.
Good luck with your Arb.

Is the Arbequina Olive salt tolerant? I live 500 feet from the ocean in Florida.

BEST ANSWER: They are moderately salt tolerant.
Can you keep this arbequina tree in a pot for a long time and how long does it live in the pot?
Nora D on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: yes you can but you need a very big pot with room for the roots plus an area for rocks at the bottom. The roots do not like to stay wet all the time, so good drainage is a must. I would expect it would live as long as it has room to grow

Karen S on Nov 5, 2016

I recently moved my olive tree indoors for the winter. It is an appropriate sized pot and in a south facing window, but it is dropping some of its leaves. Is this normal?
