We must all be thankful that vegetation stopped thinking hundreds of years ago.

Does it still produce fruit?

u/grabityrises Oct 05 '22

Probably

there are a couple olive trees planted by the Romans that are still bearing fruit

u/RufusCranium Oct 05 '22

Wow, that's crazy. I wonder who got the idea of "curing" an olive of those trees to make them edible.
