Abstract

Olives (Olea europaes) originate in the hot and dry conditions of the Mediterranean. They are hardy perennial trees, able to withstand a large variation in temperature. Olives will grow almost anywhere, however, yields can be greatly improved by selecting a suitable site. The most critical points about selecting a site are drainage and chilling period.
