Arbequina is a cultivar of olives. The fruit is highly aromatic, small, symmetrical and dark brown, with a rounded apex and a broad peduncular cavity. In Europe, it is mostly grown in Catalonia, Spain, but it is also grown in Aragon and Andalusia, as well as California, Argentina, Chile, and Australia.
Olive trees need little care once established. Choose a location for the potted tree having at least 6 hours of full sun and plant in well-draining, loamy to gritty potting soil. Container grown plants thrive in clay and unglazed pots that can evaporate excess moisture
