Arbequina Olive Tree: Savor the Essence of Mediterranean Bliss

About the Fruit

The Arbequina Olive is a culinary gem that hails from the sun-drenched orchards of Spain, cherished for its high oil content, delicate flavor, and buttery texture. These petite olives, with their rich green hue turning to a deep purple as they ripen, are perfect for both oil production and table use. Whether you’re an aspiring chef or a home cook, the Arbequina Olive elevates any dish it graces, from tapenades to dressings, with its subtle yet robust profile.

What to Know About the Tree

The Arbequina Olive Tree is a picture of resilience and grace. This evergreen showcases silvery-green foliage that shimmers under the sun, standing as a testament to its drought-tolerant nature. Compact in size, often reaching 10 to 15 feet in height, it’s an excellent fit for smaller gardens or can be grown in containers. The tree’s unique weeping form, with slender branches bowing gently under the weight of the olives, adds an element of softness and movement to any landscape.

Harvest Season

Come late fall to early winter, the Arbequina Olive Tree reaches its harvest prime. The branches become studded with clusters of olives, painting a picturesque scene that’s both inviting and rewarding. This season is a celebration of abundance, offering gardeners the joy of handpicking their very own olives, ready for curing or pressing into liquid gold—your very own homemade olive oil.

Fruitscaping™ with Olive Trees

Experience the Mediterranean in your own backyard with Fruitscaping™ using our Olive Trees. These storied trees have been cherished for millennia for their aesthetic appeal, culinary use, and cultural significance.

Olive trees are well-loved for their stunning silvery foliage and gnarled trunks, which add a rustic and elegant aesthetic to any landscape. Their small, fragrant blooms precede the formation of olives, which can be harvested and processed into olive oil or cured for table olives. Whether for their fruit or simply for their ornamental appeal, olive trees offer unique beauty and versatility.

Olive trees thrive in well-draining soil and full sun, emulating their Mediterranean origins. They are notably drought-tolerant, making them excellent choices for xeriscaping or for regions with less frequent rainfall. Their size can be managed with pruning, allowing them to fit into various garden designs.

When planning your Fruitscaping™ design, consider pairing olive trees with grapevines or fig trees for a truly Mediterranean feel. Their grey-green leaves contrast beautifully with the darker greens of other plants, adding a touch of serenity to your garden.

Discover the joy of Fruitscaping™ with Olive Trees and enjoy the fruits of your labor. From the planting and care to the satisfaction of your own olive harvest, embrace this enriching gardening journey. Embark on a horticultural adventure right in your backyard with our Olive Trees.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
