More Details

The Arbequina Olive Tree, scientifically known as Olea europaea 'Arbequina', is a highly esteemed variety cherished for its small, flavorful olives renowned for producing high-quality olive oil. Originating from Catalonia, Spain, this compact olive tree is particularly suited for backyard gardens or container cultivation due to its smaller stature and early fruit production. The Arbequina is self-fertile, with a high fruit yield and excellent cold resistance compared to other olive varieties. Its attractive, evergreen foliage and tolerance to various growing conditions make it an ideal choice for ornamental purposes, as well as for olive production in home gardens and commercial orchards alike.

Growth rate: Moderate growth rate; mature height of 10-15 feet and width of 6-10 feet.

Sizing: Our fruit and citrus trees are primarily utilized as outdoor patio or indoor plants and are potted. Accordingly, we measure our fruit and citrus trees from the bottom of the pot to the top of the tree for accuracy.

Please note: Images on our website depict plants and trees at full maturity to showcase their expected grown characteristics. These images are illustrative examples only and do not represent the size of plants or trees upon delivery.

Pruning: Prune to shape and open the canopy for light and air circulation, which promotes healthy growth and fruiting. Annual pruning is recommended in late winter or early spring.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to encourage vigorous growth.

Winter Protection: In colder zones, provide protection from freezing temperatures to prevent damage.


Choose a location with full sun and well-draining soil. Dig a hole as deep and twice as wide as the root ball. Plant the tree, backfill with soil, and water thoroughly. Space additional trees at least 10 feet apart to ensure adequate room for growth.

Arbequina Olive Trees benefit from regular watering during their establishment phase and thrive in full sun, making them suitable for gardeners in warmer climates or those willing to provide winter protection in cooler areas. Water regularly to establish a deep, extensive root system; once established, it is drought-tolerant, requiring only occasional deep watering during prolonged dry periods. Requires full sun for optimal growth and fruit production.
