About Olive

The Olive is the fruit of the Olive tree (Olea europaea) and is a major component of the agriculture and gastronomy along the Mediterranean both in Europe and North Africa, as well as in the Middle East.

The olive tree, Olea europaea, is an evergreen tree or shrub native to the Mediterranean, Asia, and Africa. It is short and squat, and rarely exceeds 8 to 15 m (26 to 49 ft) in height. 'Pisciottana', a unique variety comprising 40,000 trees found only in the area around Pisciotta in the Campania region of southern Italy often exceeds this, with correspondingly large trunk diameters.

The silvery green leaves are oblong, measuring 4 to 10 cm (1.6 to 3.9 in) long and 1to 3 cm (0.39 to1.18 in) wide. The trunk is typically gnarled and twisted.
