Comments: The olive tree is a valued ornamental evergreen tree. Can become quite large in it's natural habitat (Southwest) with the trunk becoming intriguingly irregular and gnarled. The olive is self-fruitful and will bear small, plum-shaped, green fruit beginning in late Summer and ripening to black in early to mid-Fall.
