Bring bold Spanish charm to the garden! This attractive tree features shiny green leaves and a slightly weeping habit. During spring, fragrant, creamy-white flowers emerge. Green olives quickly replace the blooms, then ripen to tan, dark purple or black in fall, signaling they are ready to be picked.


Is this for you?
Small fruit with a peppery finish! 'Arbequina' is a fast-growing self-pollinator. One plant can produce up to twenty pounds of olives annually, making it a valuable addition to your garden. Olive trees have become a universal symbol for health and peace, making them the perfect gift for any olive-loving gardener!

Originating in Spain, this variety is known for its small-pitted fruit with a flavor described as fruity with a peppery finish. In olive oil, it has a buttery, sweet taste that can't be beat!

Harvest when fruit turns deep purple or black! With the arrival of fall, green olives will begin to transform to a deep purple or black. This is the best time for harvesting!

Adaptable and hardy plant with favorable traits! 'Arbequina' olives prefer full sun locations and easily adapt to nearly any soil type. Pest, disease and drought resistant, this relatively cold hardy variety can be planted in-ground in warmer zones or easily managed in containers in cooler zones. It can even be lightly pruned to maintain shape and moved indoors during winter.

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, GUAM.
