Discover the ancient Olea europaea, commonly known as the common olive or edible olive tree. This evergreen tree grows slowly to heights of 32ft, boasting an impressive display of fragrant flowers and 1-3" gray-green leaves. Known for its twisted, gnarled trunk, it is not only a source of delicious fruit but also a beautiful ornamental addition to your garden.
Olea europaea's incredible drought resistance makes it handy even in challenging conditions. Aside from its native Mediterranean, it's cultivated and naturalized in Argentina, Saudi Arabia, China, California, and Bermuda, among others.
Its fruit, the olive, has major agricultural significance in the Mediterranean region being a source of olive oil, a core ingredient in many cuisines. The tree and fruit have also lent their name to the plant family, which includes lilacs, jasmine, Forsythia, and true ash trees. Whether you're an olive fan wanting to try your hand at cultivation, or simply looking for a distinctive addition to your garden, the Olea europaea is an absolute must-have.
