The Olive Tree

Everyday we use the byproducts of this organism. From cooking, salad dressing, a small lump in the bottom of a martini, to some olives on a pizza, this organism has an important role in our lives. Its importance is not recent. The Olive Tree in ancient times was symbolic and religious as well as being something of agriculture. The olive is such an important part of history that no other food, besides maybe the grape, could even compare to it. Something that has been so important to the past should not be forgotten, especially with the popularity the olive tree's byproducts have today. Let's take a closer look into the organism Olea europaea more commonly known as the olive tree.
