The fruit plants produce a large quantity of product every day which is not only consumed within our country but is exported outside thanks to a great demand on the world market. We must know that all trees produce fruits in a botanical sense such as oak, pine, fir, but their fruits are irrelevant. Instead, there is a category of trees with fruits called edible precisely because they are consumed by man. These trees are perhaps one of the categories of plants that require more care and attention especially in conservation and care. The most cultivated trees in Italy are undoubtedly the olive tree, the cherry tree, the peach tree and finally the citrus trees, namely the lemon, the mandarin, the orange and others. All these trees need large areas of land and constant interest from the grower. Among the most cultivated tree species in Italy, those that occupy the largest surface are without a shadow of a doubt olive trees, vines, and citrus trees. These are mainly planted in the south with a fair spread also in the north of Italy. Other fruit trees with large crops in the north are apple and pear plantations. On the other hand, trees that have been shelved for a while because they grow spontaneously are the fig and mulberry trees. The latter give spectacular results which, if appreciated by a good connoisseur, are admired.
The olive tree
The olive tree has a very robust trunk in southern Italy thanks to the fact that the plants generally grown are secular. The leaves are of two colors that contrast with each other, in fact on one side we find an intense green and on the opposite side a sparkling silver. The fruit is born in early September and develops between December and February. Precisely in this period there is the famous collection for the production of oil. He loves a flat ground that allows easy collection. The best location with regard to the climate is undoubtedly hilly.
