Helena Olive

Helena Olive
Young Olive tree in Tewantin, Queensland.

St Helena Island is a heritage National Park off the coast of Brisbane, Australia. It was a high security prison from 1867 to the 1920's and then a prison farm until its closure in 1932.

The original olive tree was planted in the late 1800's after being brought to the Island from Europe by a visiting magistrate.

This is a 3rd generation heritage tree which has a history of producing exceptional fruit and award winning olive oil.

How lovely that olives can grow. My neighbour has an olive tree but it isn't warm enough to have fruit
