The Arbequina is a favorite variety of olive (Olea europaea) in the sunny orchards of California and Spain's Catalonia region. The aromatic small brown fruit is highly prized for its delicate buttery flavor with peppery accents. Cure them in brine, then use them for tapenade, pasta dishes, antipasti platters and savory breads. Easy to take care of, olive trees can live for centuries and produce fruit for their entire lives if properly pruned.

Use & Care


  • Planting: Olive trees prefer a sunny location, but avoid excess heat, as this will dry out the soil too quickly. Outside, they enjoy full sun. A location that provides morning sun or filtered light throughout the day is ideal. If grown indoors, the tree should be kept at least 24" from the window to avoid leaf burn. 
  • Watering: Water the tree as soon as you receive it. Water daily through hot spells and every other day in the spring and fall, if left in the original pot, and as needed in the winter. Water to keep the soil moist, not wet.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from A tree about life I was given this tree two years ago and it was actually just a twig. I planted it in good soil, in a pot that drains, placed it in a sunny window, and it has grown about 500% in two years. This is not a "pop up" plant but one that will grown over time and reflect the passing of time in your life.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Received one stick of a twig Misleading photography and description. You will received a twig about 1/8 of the size of what you see in the pictures. No care instructions.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as pictured I ordered them for Mother's Day gifts and was very disappointed to receive two sticks. Could have been a cute gift but they failed. Returning has also been an issue. Still waiting for the return label after two calls.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as pictured I just received this item and it is not at all like the photographs. It’s a thin reed with no branches. I also did not receive care instructions but the soil was moist and the leaves look healthy

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not like the picture! It’s a whip. I ordered this because people commented that it arrived and looked just like the picture. Mine is just a whip. No branches. I didn’t receive any care instructions either like others mentioned. However it looks very health so I’m excited to see it grow and blossom.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baby Olives Already! I bought this tree about 2 months ago, and I have baby olive buds already! Upon arrival, the tree was well packaged, and very healthy. It looked exactly as shown. I followed the directions, immediately planted it, and it’s been a wonderful experience.
