Arbequina Fruiting Olive
Olea europaea 'Arbequina'
|Description||A self-fruiting olive prized for its dark brown fruit with highly aromatic oil content and attractive, silvery green foliage. Highly adaptable, it produces abundantly in hot dry climates, and has shown increased hardiness over other varieties, withstanding temperatures as low as 5 degrees. Makes a beautiful specimen shrub or small tree.|
|Watering||Once established, water if very dry.|
|Blooms||Inconspicuous spring flowers.|
|Mature Size||Slowly reaches 35 to 40 ft. tall, 25 ft. wide.|
|Care||Thrives in most average, slightly alkaline, well-drained soils, but highly adaptable. More productive when planted near another olive variety. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; tolerates drought. Shelter young plants from winter extremes.|
