The Olive Tree
The Mediterranean, a favorable environment for the olive tree and its fruits.
The olive tree belongs to the Oleaceae family and is a plant typical of the Mediterranean area where it is a distinct feature of the countryside landscape.
It stands out for its longevity and its ability to produce fruits even in very dry or cold conditions, are precisely what the plant requires to live and flourish the light and wind of the Mediterranean.
The olive is the fruit of the olive tree. It is long and oval in shape and consists of skin, flesh and stone. In the time that passes between its formation and harvest, the fruit ripens from September to November, accumulating oil and increasing in size.
The ripening of olives is affected by many environmental factors such as drought, rain, and exposure to wind and sun. Human action is also important for the life of the plant, through actions such as pruning, irrigation, use of fertilizers and manure. It is important to emphasize the close link between the application of agronomic techniques and oil quality.
A good oil is the result of a complex olive forming process in which the environment, agronomic techniques and the olive varieties play a fundamental key role.
In Italy the olive plant predominates on the land and boasts a genetic heritage that brings together varieties with different characteristics.
