Spanish Olive Tree grows in Manhattan
It is possible to purchase a nice black Spanish olive tree in the city for around $425. Head over to the 20s on the Westside and marvel at the Mediterranean perfection made for Manhattan. The only issue is that you can't plant an olive tree outdoors as it will freeze and die. So what you need is indoor space with high ceilings and direct natural sunlight. Make sure the soil is kept moist at all times as the roots cannot grow long like in the chalky soil of native lands. Also, this tree is bulky so it will make an ideal window shade to give you privacy. Will one tree bear fruit?
