Olive seeds (Olea europaea)
Olive trees have been grown in the Mediterranean for the last 6000 years. Even in conditions of extreme heat and drought these trees can reach an age of over 2000 years.
The variety we offer is: Arbequina, this is grown in Cordoba, Lleida and Tarragona.
Arbequina olive trees are very productive , very tolerant to cold to -12 degrees, and also very drought tolerant. For this reason they are often used as a basis for grafting other varieties . 78% of the olive trees in California have Arbequina feet .
Olive trees need little care and slow growth can be used as "Bonsai " or " penjing".
