Olea europaea (Olive Tree) have tiny silver-green leaves and are evergreen. Olive trees are thin, graceful seedlings while they are young, but as they grow older, they become twisted, with thick callus trunks that are clearly identifiable. The olive tree's leaves are thick, leathery, and lance-shaped. The leaves are arranged in a diagonal pattern. The leaves have a brilliant green hue at the summit of the tree. Lower leaves are a dark green color. The olive tree's blooms bloom in tiny clusters with 15 to 30 petite, white, and fragrant flowers. The fruit is a drupe that is around 0.8-1 inch long on average. The seed is encased in a central pit.
