What do they do with olive pits?
The pit and seed of olives have traditionally been discarded as waste products. New optical sorting technology developed by the Bhler Group is able to extract the seeds from inside the olive pits, which can be eaten raw or roasted in a variety of ways. Olives can also be used as a source of biofuels, as they contain a high amount of cellulose, a type of carbohydrate that can be converted into ethanol.
In the past, olive oil has been used in the production of biodiesel, but the process is not as efficient as it could be, due to the fact that the oil must be heated to a certain temperature to convert it into a usable fuel. The new technology can convert the oils into usable fuels at a much lower temperature, making it a viable alternative to traditional methods of producing biofuel.
Will a potted olive tree grow olives?
Absolutely, you can grow olives in containers. The trees are ideal for container life because they are very tolerant of the weather. After the threat of frost has passed, the best time to start growing olives in containers is in the spring. Olive trees can be grown in a wide variety of containers, including plastic, metal, glass, ceramic, and glass-fiber containers.
They can also be planted directly in the ground, but this is not recommended due to the risk of root rot. It is also important to keep in mind that you will need to water the tree regularly, especially during the summer months when the temperature can drop to as low as -20°F (-4°C).
Olive tree roots need a lot of water to grow, so it is best to use a container that is large enough to allow the roots to spread out and allow them to soak up as much water as possible.

The red stuffing found in spanish and greek green olives is called pimiento peppers. To balance out the olive’s overpowering flavor, the pimiento was hand-cut into tiny pieces, then hand-stuffed into each olive.

How long can olive trees live in pots?
Olive trees can live in a pot for a number of years, although they will eventually need to be planted in the ground to survive. Depending on the climate, the tree can live up to eight or nine years if you have a large pot.
The best time to plant olive trees is in late spring or early summer, when the weather is warm and the soil is moist. If you plant the trees in early spring, you will have to wait until late summer or fall to harvest the fruit.
This is because the leaves of the olive tree do not fully mature until the end of September or the beginning of October.
