|Arbequina Olive Tree||
Arbequina is the major olive tree of California and Catalonia in Northeast Spain. It is a relatively small tree with small fruit, it is suitable for dense planting but hard to harvest by conventional shakers. The oil is considered of high quality but not very stable in storage. The production starts early and is high, with relatively small alternating production.
It is the major cultivar in Catalonia particularly in Lleida and Tarragona. Traditionally planting was up to 200 trees per hectare but is planted considerably denser in new modern orchards. New hybrids of Arbequina are planted in high density plantings to maximize oil production.
Arbequina is considered frost hardy and well adapted to different soil types. In the Central Valley of California trees regularly take 22f winter nights without any problems. As the crown is small it is suitable for dense planting. In Catalonia the Arbequina is usually self-fertile. The yield is high and it is considered an early bearer. The fruit is small with oil content 20-22% under non-irrigated conditions. The oil is of high quality with a fruity flavor but its stability is not very high.
Origin of Arbequina is believed to be in the province of Lleida and Tarragona.
The tree is relatively small with low vigor and somewhat dropping branches of short to medium length. The tree tends to naturally widen. It responds well to pruning and can be shaped and kept small if required. The tree responds well to relatively severe pruning.
This tree makes a great container plant with other herbs and flowers planted with it.
