Arbequina Olive

Bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your home. This variety is revered as both a table olive and an oil olive. These trees are imported from the Mediterranean region and then grown in California wine country before being sent to you. Their tasty fruit and gorgeous gray-green foliage will evoke the faraway landscapes they came from. Matures to be 8-10' tall. Heat-tolerant. Harvest in late summer through mid fall. Self-pollinating. If you live in Zones 4-8, plant these warm-weather species in containers so that you can move them indoors before freezing temps arrrive.
