OLIVE TREE - ARBEQUINA (Olea europaea)
A true olive variety of Spanish origin. Selected for hardiness, heavy yield & compactness. Olives are small, rugged, drought tolerant, semi-evergreen trees, that require sun & good drainage. Best suited to areas with long, hot summers, though it has been grown as far North as Seattle outside & can be grown in a pot in a sunny window. This variety is self fertile. Begins bearing in several years & is resistant to leaf spot & verticillium. For eating, the small olives are pickled and naturally cured for 4 months. Arbequina makes an especially fine olive oil as well. Olives are one of the oldest cultivated fruit trees, dating back to 3000 B.C. Olive leaves contain oleuropein, a phenolic compound with anti-fungal, anti-viral & anti-bacterial properties. Zone 7-10.
