Bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your home. The Arbequina Olive variety is revered as both a table olive, for its mild buttery & lightly fruity flavor, as well as an oil olive for its high oil concentration. Tasty fruit & gorgeous gray-green foliage will evoke the rolling Spanish landscapes where this variety is widely grown. Olives hang well on the tree & ripen at different intervals. Drought-tolerant, pest-resistant, and heat-tolerant the olives will ripen starting in November. This tree is also self pollinating so you do not want more trees unless you need more olives. They prefer bright direct sunlight for a minimum of 6 hours per day. They are a drought tolerant tree that are supposed to only be watered when the soil in the pot is about 50% dry. All the way through the growing season feed with a high nitrogen slow-release fertilizer. Because this can be a slow growing plant you may only want to repot every other year. Shipping and handling can be very tough on live plants so please you’ll want to open and check your plant right away. Mist the foliage and check the soil for moisture. Our plant team gives each plant a drink before they are individually shipped and wrapped so they may not want to be watered right away. We are unable to ship this plant to California because of restrictions by the California Department of Agriculture. There are no other authorized sellers of American Plant Exchange plants. Please be sure that you order and receive an American Plant Exchange plant shipped and sold by Amazon. American plant exchange is a 35-year-old Florida based nursery that supports women in our community in a mutually beneficial work release skill development program.
