Oleaster, also known as wild olive or Russian olive, is a small tree or shrub that is native to Europe and western Asia. It has been widely introduced to other regions of the world, including North America, where it is considered an invasive species.
The leaves of Oleaster are gray-green, elongated, and have a silvery underside. The tree produces small, fragrant, yellow flowers in the spring, which are followed by green, olive-like fruits that turn a deep red or purple as they mature.
Oleaster has a mild, slightly bitter taste and a pleasant aroma. The fruits are edible and can be used to make jams, jellies, and syrups, while the leaves and bark have been used in traditional medicine for their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
In addition to its culinary and medicinal uses, Oleaster is valued for its hard wood, which is dense and strong and has been used in the construction of tools, furniture, and other objects.
Overall, Oleaster is a versatile and useful plant with a long history of human use. As a bulk product, it can be a valuable addition to a variety of industries, including food, medicine, and woodworking.
