Tasty Olives and Fast Growth

Fresh, healthy olives. Arbequinas are popular because of their flavor, but they also have a high concentration of healthy, antioxidant-rich oils. You can get up to 20 pounds of olives each year to enjoy in your salads and add to your favorite recipes.

Plus, they grow nearly anywhere. Arbequina Olive Trees are very adaptable and can thrive in all areas of the United States. They're seldom bothered by pests and will grow organically, no matter where you live.

And you can grow Arbequinas indoors year-round. These trees are semi-deciduous, meaning they only drop their leaves in extreme cold and tolerate 20-degree weather. Grown indoors, they'll keep their leaves throughout the winter.

You can plant them outdoors in growing zones 8 through 11 and even in zone 7, if they're blocked from Northern winds. If you're up North, place them in a container and bring them indoors during the harshest weeks of winter, moving them outdoors during the summer months.

Best of all, Arbequinas are self-pollinating, so you only need one to produce fruit, though extra trees mean an even bigger bounty. And more is more when it comes to bushels of fruit and beauty.

Mature olive trees are sold and transplanted for $10,000 or more. But 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 they're grown outdoors or inside in containers.

Even better, our trees are started from branch cuttings instead of seeds, so you'll have olives several years sooner. Your tree is grown and shipped in its own container with all of its roots intact, so your tree is ready to grow quickly and fruit. 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.

My Organic Olive Tree
It came nicely packaged and no damage even though the box was crushed. I transplanted it using the suggested planting mix into a larger planter. It's been several weeks and it's still green. It's very tiny but there may be a few leaves starting to sprout.
A little small, but seems to be doing okay.

Sweet little tree
I'm very happy with this little tree; it seems to be doing well so far. One thing that concerns me a bit is a sort of greyish film on some of the leaves. I don't know if it's anything to worry about or not, but I expect I'll contact the company soon to ask about it. Other than this all is lovely.

Beautiful Tree, not doing well indoors
When the tree arrived, it was gorgeous and full. It was indoors for about a month in indirect, but full sunlight and the leaves have been drying up and dropping. Not sure what I am doing wrong but I have moved it outside for the time being before it gets too cold here in Colorado.

I bought 2. One 4' and then later one 6'.
The 4' is still in the pot it was shipped in and is doing well. With all the rain we've been getting, why not? The 6' tree I replanted into a larger pot. I'm 4.5' above sea level, and we've had about 40" of rain in the last 2 months. Many of the trees I planted in the spring are stressing, some even sitting in puddles. They arrived in perfect shape, but may be patio trees for a while.

The full-root tree arrived in a very sturdy, secure package and was an extremely healthy looking specimen. To my surprise, it was also a foot taller than expected/ordered, so that was a nice "bonus." After transplanting the tree to a larger pot, the olive tree initially lost leaves, but has since seemed to have recovered nicely over the one month that I've had it and actually has new growth on it.
I am very please with customer service (they helped me place the order and answered my questions) and my overall experience with Fast-Growing Trees. I would definitely recommend and buy from them again.

Arbequina Olive — two trees in Colorado
It’s a very spindly tree. We purchased two so they could bloom together..... we shall see??!
They’re under a covered porch and get a lot of indirect sun.
I’ll move them indoors with appropriate season change .
Slow growing.

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.

how do you prune an olive tree ?

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
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 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.

Jim T on Mar 19, 2017
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

How old does the tree have to be to produce?
Karen S on Nov 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It can take 2-3 years to produce olives.
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?
