Arbosana Olive Trees

Arbosana, which originates in Spain and matures a little later than Arbequina, is considered to be more vigorous than the latter. The olives grown on Arbosana olive trees have a sweet, fruity taste with nutty undertones and a medium level of astringency. Growing in high-density plantings is an excellent choice for a home gardener, as it consistently produces high-quality fresh-eating olives.

These self-fertile dwarf trees have sage-green leaves and a Mediterranean flair that provides shade without taking up much room—reaching only about 12 feet. You can use this as a patio tree, container plant, or even a tropical houseplant if you have adequate sunlight. After all, what’s better than drizzling homegrown olive oil over crusty bread and seasoning it with a pinch of black pepper?

Care and Maintenance

Arbosana olive trees are exceedingly versatile and thrive in ordinary, slightly alkaline, well-drained soils. Water deeply and frequently during the first few growing seasons to help the plant build a strong root system. Once established, reduce the frequency of watering; it is drought-tolerant. However, protect young plants (or freshly transplanted Arbosana) from extreme winter weather.
