Olives have been an important agricultural product around the Mediterranean for thousands of years and still today. They probably also originated from there (Syria/Turkey/Iraq). Already around 600 BC olive trees were also grown in Greece and North Africa. Nowadays you can find them spread worldwide in warm climates, even with us, where they can be kept as a container plant. There are more than 80 varieties of the species Olea europaea by crossing, but in fact only the olives of the subspecies Olea europaea ssp. sylvestris edible. Olive trees grow slowly and only bear the first olives after 5 years. However, they can live for hundreds of years. The soil is not subject to too many requirements, but they are very sensitive to soil that is too wet. On the other hand, however, the soil should never dry out completely. In the summer you need to water regularly, but leave the plant a few days between waterings. Fertilizing every two weeks is also recommended. In winter (frosts), the olive tree should go inside, preferably in a room with direct sunlight, not too close to the radiator or to the window. Do not leave too wet, but also do not let it dry out completely. From October onwards, no more fertilizing. When placing it outside again in the spring, you have to give the tree time to get used to it again: not suddenly in full sun and wind but gradually from the shade to full sun. Can tolerate some frost but the first years it is better to winter the olive inside frost-free
