Similar to conditions in the Mediterranean, these trees like a warm climate near the coast with branches and stems reaching toward the sun. While relatively young in age, they produce an annual olive crop with some limbs so heavy with fruit they weep toward the ground. This photo taken last week shows olives in their green, grape-like red, purple and black stages of maturity.
