Tasty California Olives, Home-Grown and Hassle-Free
Why Arbequina Olive Trees?
Fresh, healthy olives, grown locally in California. With this Arbequina Olive Tree, an oil variety from Spain, you’ll have delectable taste right at home. And because this variety is native to and grows in the Golden State, it will grow well in your own California landscape.
Plus, these Arbequina Olives thrive both indoors and outdoors, especially since they’re ultra-compact. Planted in the ground, Arbequinas reach 20 to 30 feet in height, but when they’re container-planted, they last season after season and stay much smaller and manageable for inside areas. Even better? These trees are semi-deciduous, meaning they only drop their leaves in extreme cold and can tolerate 20-degree weather when they’re outside.

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.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: To container plant your Arbequina, choose a pot that is two or three times the width of its shipped container. When it outgrows the pot, you can move to ground planting or a larger container.
After choosing your container, place the Olive Tree inside and cover with soil, tamping down as you backfill. Then water to settle the roots - it's that simple.
2. Watering: Weekly waterings should suffice for your Arbequina, but if you're not sure when to water, just check the soil. When the soil is dry in the first two inches, it’s time to water.
3. Fertilizing: Use a high nitrogen fertilizer, like a 17-6-10 timed-release fertilizer, for best results.
4. Pruning: Thin out young plants to 3 or 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!
5. Harvesting: Olives can be picked easily as soon as they ripen and enjoyed now or later.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Came in perfect condition and acclimated really quickly (still indoors). Time will tell whether it will get used to the somewhat chilly climate of San Francisco but so far so good.
So, there were some issues with the delivery, which took longer (a full week) than it should have as I live only thirty minutes away from the wholesale nursery. I'll give that to the craziness of the spring of 2020. The tree is awesome and is doing well in its new terracotta pot. Looking forward to my first harvest.
Our cute little olive tree arrived a little scared, but quickly. After we pulled him out of his shipping container, calmed his nerves, and gave him some water, he started to warm up to us. He has a nice home now on our second floor deck and gets to bask in the sun all day and enjoy the gentle breezes that come in the afternoon. I couldn’t have had a more pleasant experience becoming a proud Arbequina parent and I keep asking myself, “who rescued whom?”
I was so excited to open my olive tree box. My trees were safely packed and crisp and green when I stood them up. They were so healthy. I repotted them and put them outside on the porch. They are just beautiful!
