The olive is a species of a small tree in the family Oleaceae. The plant has significant importance in the Mediterranean region as the source of olive oil, and is one of the most extensively cultivated fruit crops in the world. It produces silvery green, oblong leaves and small, white, feathery flowers. The fruit is divided into three categories: green, semi-ripe/turning-color, and black/ripe.
