Arbequina Olive

Arbequina Olive

XF144

An exciting edible ornamental that brings a bold European statement to your yard. Arbequina is a handsome, compact tree with silvery/gray foliage and small fruit suitable for curing and making olive oil. This hardier, Spanish variety produces green fruit that ripen to dark brown/black in early fall. The plants are anxious producers, bearing fruit in the first or second year after planting. Gorgeous when planted in containers, or set directly in the ground in zones 8 and higher. Trees require at least one half day of sun.

Olive plants are one year old and ship end of April/beginning of May. Plants are in 3 1/2 inch pots. Order early for best availability. Complete growing instructions are included with each order.

PLEASE READ: Not available to HI, US Territories, or Canada.

Initial Instructions
After unpacking, allow the plant a few days to gradually acclimate to full exposure. If you are keeping your olive tree in a container, re-pot it into a 6-8 inch diameter pot. The plant will require re-potting to a larger container as it grows. Up-pot when the plant appears root bound or when large roots push out the drainage holes.

Cultivation
Allow the soil to dry out a bit between waterings. Protect your plant during the winter the first year until it is well established. In areas colder than zone 8, bring plants indoors to a bright window or into a greenhouse during the winter months.
