Description

It is a small to medium-sized evergreen tree native to the Mediterranean region and is widely cultivated for its edible fruits, known as olives, as well as its ornamental value.

It has a slow growth rate and can live for many years, with some specimens reaching several centuries in age.

Olea Europaea is best known for its fruits, olives, which are harvested and processed for various culinary uses, including olive oil, table olives, and other olive-based products. The fruits are typically small and oval-shaped, turning from green to black or purplish-black when ripe. Olives have a distinctive flavour and are an integral part of Mediterranean cuisine.

The Olive tree is also valued for its ornamental qualities. Its greyish green foliage and twisted, gnarled trunks give it a unique and picturesque appearance. The tree’s tolerance to drought and its ability to adapt to various soil types make it suitable for landscaping in Mediterranean and arid climates.

Olive trees are typically grown in full sun and well-drained soil. They are known for their resilience and ability to tolerate challenging growing conditions, such as poor soils and drought. Pruning may be necessary to maintain the desired shape and size of the tree, as well as to promote better fruiting.
