Olea Europaea: Olive Tree
The Olive Tree, known by its botanical name Olea Europaea, is a historically significant fruiting tree native to the Mediterranean basin. The species is cultivated in all the countries of the Mediterranean, as well as South America, South Africa, China, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and the United States. Fossil evidence indicates the olive tree had its origins 20–40 million years ago in the Oligocene, and as far back as 3000 BC, olives were grown commercially in Crete; they may have been the source of the wealth of the Minoan civilization. The tree is agriculturally, religiously, and symbolically significant in many mediterranean cultures, and Olive oil is an extremely ubiquitous agricultural product that has been exported all over the world.
