Arbequina olive trees typically flower from March to May, ripen in November and are wind-pollinated and self-fertile. This means they do not need additional plants to produce olives. However, having additional olive trees nearby will increase your olive production.

Fruit production usually starts between 2-4 years. At maturity they can grow between 15-20 feet in height with an 8-12 foot spread. Harvesting your Arbequina olive tree is best between September and December, depending on the local climate.

Known mostly for producing olive oil, Arbequina are also great to eat alone or paired with a tangy cheese, dried figs, pears or almonds.
