Mediterranean Olive

Description
A rustic old-world species tree that can be used indoors or out. In midsummer, small creamy white blooms appear all over this ancient ornamental, contrasting beautifully with the long, leathery, gray-green foliage. In early to mid fall, small, oblong green olives that ripen to deep, rich black are ready to be picked and enjoyed as a quick and healthy snack, or chopped into salads or your favorite Mediterranean dishes. If not in a warm climate, bring this plant indoors to overwinter. Fruiting begins within one to two years of planting. Mediterranean Olive will grow larger if planted in the ground in a suitable climate. This self-pollinating tree prefers full sun. Olea europaea
