Olea europaea is an evergreen tree with a rounded crown. Very small white flowers bloom in panicles in summer on stems from the leaf axils. Flowers are fragrant. Flowers give way to oval green drupes (olives) which ripen to black. Each olive contains a single pit. Olives from this species are commercially harvested as eating olives and for production of olive oils.
