Busida trees

Size: 1.5 to 2.5 meters

Bucida buceras, Though commonly called ‘black olive tree’, this
native of the upper Florida Keys (some consider it
native, others do not) is not the edible olive we know
and love, but does produce a small, black seed capsule.



Black olive is a 40 to 50-foot-tall evergreen
tree with a smooth trunk holding up strong, wind-resistant
branches, forming a pyramidal shape when
young but developing a very dense, full, oval to
rounded crown with age. Sometimes the top of the
the crown will flatten with age, and the tree grows
horizontally. The lush, dark bluish-green, leathery
leaves are two to four inches long and clustered at
branch tips, sometimes mixed with the 0.5 to 1.5-inchlong
spines found along the branches.”
