Olive trees

The olive tree in Italy is particularly prominent in temperate/warm central and southern areas, but due to its great adaptability to soils and climates it is also successfully grown in the north of Italy. Its product is olives, which are used in the manufacture of oil or for direct consumption.
The olive tree can reach a height of up to 20 metres while the diameter can range from 6-12 metres including the foliage.
It is an evergreen plant, it grows very slowly and has a long lifespan, it can live for hundreds of years.
The flowers, which join together to form a shape very similar to a cob, are white with 4 petals, and flowering occurs from April to June. The fruits ripen, depending on the area, from September to winter.
