Olea europaea, the origin of the cultivated olive, is very widespread in Mediterranean countries, Africa, the Arabian peninsula, the Indian subcontinent and Asia. Several subspecies are recognized, one of which is the small-fruited subspecies africana (formerly Olea africana). The leaves have an opposite, decussate arrangement, and are entire, 3 to 7 centimeters. Leaf margins are entire and recurved, the upper surface is grey-green and glossy, and the lower surface has a dense covering of silvery, golden or brown scales. The tree produces sprays of tiny white flowers which precede the tiny, purple-black fruit which attracts birds such as Bubuls, Barbets and Louries to the tree. Individual flowers are white or cream coloured. 

The flowers are very small and somewhat inconspicuous but sweetly scented. The glossy black fruits are edible, the fruit from some trees being pleasantly sweet tasting, while fruit from other trees may be sour or bitter. It takes takes well to pruning, which should be commenced while the tree is still young

  • Position: Preferably full sun but will tolerate partial shade.
  • Watering: Water regularly but sparingly during growing season. Do not over water, Olives are fairly drought tolerant plants. There is normally no need to water Olive trees during the winter, only make sure the root ball does not dry out. Protect from excess water during the winter period by covering the pot or plant.
