שם מדעי : Olea
עץ ממשפחת הזיתיים שכולל כ -40 מינים. העץ הזה נקרא זית ברנע והוא פיתוח מקומי ארץ ישראלי. עץ הזית התגלה לראשונה לפני אלפי שנים בנחל אורן שבכרמל כצמח בר בעל פרי קטן ותורבת לראשונה לפני יותר מ-5,000 שנים בדרום סוריה, ניתן למצוא בארצנו עצי זית בני יותר מ-2,000 שנים וישנם כשבעה עצי זית (ממוקמים ב"עראבה " שליד כרמיאל) שהוערכו כבני יותר מ-3,000 שנים.
הזית נמנה על שבעת המינים. הפריחה והלבלוב מתחילים באביב. הפרחים ערוכים באשכולות ורק חלק קטן מהם מגיעים לשלב החנטה שמתרחשת באמצע הקיץ. מסיק הזיתים נעשה בסתיו. לזיתים ערך בריאותי רב ושמן הזית, שמופק מהזיתים משמש הן למאכל והן לרפואה.

Scientific name: Olea
A tree from the Oleaceae family that includes about 40 species. This tree is called Olive Barnea and is a local development of Eretz Israel. The olive tree was first discovered thousands of years ago in Nahal Oren in Carmel as a wild plant with small fruit and cultivated for the first time more than 5,000 years ago in southern Syria. Olive trees can be found in our country that are more than 2,000 years old and there are about seven olive trees (located in the "Araba" near Carmiel) that are estimated to be more than 3,000 years old.
The olive is one of the seven species*. Flowering begin in spring. The flowers are arranged in clusters and only a small part of them reach the germination stage that occurs in mid-summer. The olive harvest is done in the fall. Olives have great health value and olive oil, which is extracted from the olives, is used for both food and medicine.

* "Seven species" - 7 types of plants mentioned in the Book of Deuteronomy, and which describe the agricultural abundance of the Land of Israel
