Plant: Olives...

Due to the Mediterranean climate of coastal California, olive thrives here...
Large plantations of olive can be seen in certain parts of the state....
This is a shot of olive-lined street in agricultural bowl San Joaquin valley........

Also, they are a common part of landscaping..

Many housing and market complexes in South California have abundant olive trees..
Recently, I learned that olive pollen is a major aero-allergen....inducing rhinitis, sinusitis, conjuctivitis etc....

The trunks with foliar buds..

The tender fruits in early summer...........



Ripening in August...dotting the pavements..reminds me of ripe jamun fruits, in Indian monsoon time..


The old, crooked-trunked trees..........
