Arbequina Olive Tree - 1 Quart Pot  8-10" Tall

Arbequina is a cultivar of olive that is highly aromatic, small, symmetrical, and dark brown.  They are known to grow in the Mediterranean regions of the world.  It has recently become one of the most dominant olive cultivars in the world and is grown largely on plantations.  

Arbequina is one of the few cold-tolerant Olive cultivars.  They are usually good to climate zone 7.  Although they can handle freezes, they do not like rapid or vast temperature changes.  So 100°F days and 35°F nights will probably cause them harm. 

Arbequina Olive trees are adaptable to different conditions of climate and soil, but they do best in alkaline soils and can thrive in long, hot dry summers.  They are frost hardy and pest resistant.  

The variety is very productive and the fruit matures in mid-Fall but they do not all ripen at once.
