Olive tree
Olive trees appear many times in the Bible and were another valuable source of nutrition at the time of Jesus -- and still today. As olive trees produce oil, fruit and wood they were a valuable trading commodity. The Garden of Gethsemane had a small olive grove and the Aramaic meaning of the name suggests it had an oil press on the site. The short evergreen tree is still popular today, growing in gardens and plant pots across the world.
