Arbequina Olive Tree Update

hundreds of Olives Forming

Todays post is really exciting for me because I do believe I have Arbequina Olive Tree harvest on the way!  In this post you will see a video featuring what the tree looks like and what I’ve been doing to get fruit.

Arbequina Olive Tree Update Year Two

It was a toasty day in the dome but I LOVE IT and so do the fun things growing inside.  No filters in todays video… sorry I was little sweaty and super excited to share with you the olive trees.  Check out the video below!

I love making videos to show you what is really going on in my dome. I appreciate you taking the time to check out my videos.  You can find most of my videos on Bren Haas Channel features on YouTube.  IF you have issues viewing or would like to learn more please reach out to me on my website!

Arbequina Olive Tree Observations

As mentioned in the video, these two trees have been growing in my dome since Autumn  2019.  You can read about where I found them on an early post:

The trees have not grown much taller but do appear to be getting a little wider.  The plants are in a shallow 18″ wide container in a potting soil with succulents growing as a mulch.  The small tree is about 3 feet tall and 2 feet wide.  Perfect size for a patio if you don’t have a dome.  You will have to move them indoors before a freeze arrives because the tree doesn’t like to go below 20*F.  Mine have been doing amazing where the temperature doesn’t drop below 45*F during the winter season.

Obviously, I will have to do another post to let you know what happens to these little ‘olive’ nubs.  I hope I will have a harvest to share with you by summers end.  Be sure to subscribe to my website email to find out more

  1. Hope you do well with your olives I have two trees also same age same situation. Unfortunately my olives started turning brown and schrivelling up. I suspect they were not getting enough water at the criticle time. Transplanted them today to larger pots.

    • Unfortunately, my little blooms didn’t turn into olives. I am not sure what I did wrong but I will definitely try again. The plant is still a beautiful addition to my dome greenhouse. I have both my plants in containers so they could go outside for the summer. This year I am keeping the plants in the dome for safe keeping while I research how to get them to bloom and produce.
