The olive plant has very ancient roots and was brought to Italy by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians. In ancient times, the olive plant was considered a symbol of peace and triumph, and its fruit was used mainly for rites and ceremonies of purification. The oil extracted from the olives was consumed as food or taken as a real medicine. The evergreen olive tree has lanceolate and green-coloured leaves. Between spring and summer trees begin to blossom and get covered with flowers that contain on the inside both male (androecium) and female (gynoecium) apparatus. The fruit (drupe) is fleshy and has different varieties according to shape and colour. Even though it can withstand periods of water shortage, it can give limited production during droughts. Water supply is extremely important in the period from March to August (during particular phenological phases of the development of the flower, from blossoming, to the fruit growth and formation of the stone) and in autumn (when drupes and consistency of their flesh are well defined, and so is the maturation of the olives and the production of oil). The advantageous microclimate of the Abruzzo hills guarantees a regular and well-balanced nutrition and water supply for crops, which boosts the farming development and, therefore, will give a top quality product.
