Olive Tree

You potted plant looks like it could be an olive tree. Have you seen any fruit or seed pods on the tree yet? Sorry but it is a bit hard to tell exactly from your photo, but from this photo it appears to be an olive tree. If it is, olive trees are broadleaved evergreen trees that grow about 9 meters tall and at least as wide. Creamy white flowers come in spring, followed by bitter black fruit (except on fruitless kinds) that stains everything it falls on. These are beautiful, long-lived, drought-tolerant trees,. It is one of the oldest known cultivated trees in history and is native to the Mediterranean. Needs full sun, regular water if kept in a container, but do not allow it to sit in water. It is best to grow outdoors.
